Are You Taking Care of Your Aging Parents Dental Needs?

Blog by Dr. Ratnika agarwal, dental surgeon/owner of smile up dental care implant center, pune

Advancing age puts many seniors at risk for a number of oral health problems, such as:


    Darkened teeth. Caused, to some extent, by changes in dentin -- the bone-like tissue that underlies the tooth enamel -- and by a lifetime of consuming stain-causing foods beverages.
    Dry mouth. It is caused by reduced saliva flow, which can be a result of cancer treatments as well as certain diseases medication side effects. Many medicines can cause dry mouth.
    Diminished sense of taste. While advancing age impairs the sense of taste, diseases, medications,  dentures can also contribute to this sensory loss.
    Root decay. This is caused by exposure of the tooth root to decay-causing acids.
    Gum disease. Caused by plaque made worse by food left in teeth, use of tobacco products, poor-fitting bridges and dentures, poor diets, and certain diseases, such as anemia, cancer, and diabetes, this is often a problem for older adults.
    Tooth loss. Gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss.
    Uneven jawbone. This is caused by tooth then not replacing missing teeth. This allows the rest of the teeth to drift and shift into open spaces
    Denture-induced stomatitis. Ill-fitting dentures, poor dental hygiene, or a buildup of the fungus candida cause this condition, which is inflammation of the tissue underlying a denture.
    Thrush. Diseases or drugs that affect the immune system can trigger the overgrowth of the fungus candida in mouth


Age in and of itself is not a dominant or sole factor in determining oral health. However, certain medical conditions, such as arthritis in the hands and fingers, may make brushing or flossing teeth difficult to impossible to perform. Drugs can also affect oral health and may make a change in your dental treatment necessary.

Oral hygiene tips for seniors:

Daily brushing flossing of natural teeth is essential to keeping them in good oral health. Plaque can build up quickly on the teeth of seniors, especially if oral hygiene is neglected, & lead to tooth decay and gum disease.

To maintain good oral health, it's important for all individuals -- regardless of age -- to:


    Brush at least twice a day with a fluoride-containing toothpaste
    Floss at least once a day
    Rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash once or twice a day
    Visit our team of experience dentist at smile up dental care implant center on a regular schedule for cleaning an oral exam. We will be very happy to serve you.


What seniors can expect during a dental exam

If you're a senior headed for a check up, our dentistry team will conduct a thorough history dental exam to provide you with the best solutions to resolve the problems from its root cause. Questions asked during a dental history will include:


    The approximate date of your last dental visit and reason for the visit

    If you have noticed any difficulty tasting, chewing, or swallowing
    If you have any pain, discomfort, sores, or bleeding in your mouth
    If you have noticed any lumps, bumps, or swellings in your mouth


During an oral exam, our experience team of dentists will check the following: your face & neck (for skin discoloration, moles, sores); your bite (for any problems in how the teeth come together while opening closing your mouth); your jaw (for signs of clicking and popping in the temporomandibular joint); your lymph nodes salivary glands (for any sign of swelling or lumps); your inner cheeks (for infections, ulcers, traumatic injuries); your tongue and other interior surfaces -- floor of the mouth, soft and hard palate, gum tissue (for signs of infection or oral cancer); and your teeth (for decay, condition of fillings, and cracks).

Q1. Hi, I am aged 33. I do have 4 unused tooth in all the four edges lower and upper. The upper two tooth started decaying slowly and the lower tooth's often filled by food particles. I am planning to remove all the four tooth. Could you please advise on that? Q2. I am suffering from bad odour I am doubting it is due to the decayed tooth. Q3. I would also like to do deep cleaning of my teeth. Any suggestions on that? What is the time interval that I can go for deep cleaning for the next time?

Hello Lybrate user, from question I can infer that you are talking about your third molars or wisdom teeth. Yes, they are quite notorious, they are of no use, they doesn't erupt properly and are more prone to caries (decay). So it is very good idea to remove them. There can be numerous reason for foul smell from your mouth most common is poor oral hygiene i.e. The plaque and calculus deposited over teeth surface. So I would recommend If you are not in pain due to your third molar do this deep cleaning first and in the next week you can undergo the procedure to remove the third molar. Also start by brushing twice daily and using a good mouthwash for a month. Hope this helps.

You can remove it and it does not harm you. After you got the teeth removed follow the medications and do according to the instructions given. It may not cause pain initially but later it can create problem if it has no space for its eruption.

Dear lybrate-user. Tooth has natural tendancy to go back to their place. So treatment will be completed in one and half year. For next 6 months you have to wear retainer plates to maintain the treatment out come. So total duration 2 years. You can also ask your dentist for esthetic braces if you are concerned. Those are slightly costlier than regular one. Regards.

Hello doctor, my problem is that I can not open my mouth last 5years properly, I have take vitamin a capsule, antioxidant capsule but no effect in my mouth so please help me what can I do.

May be due to erupting last molar or the wisdom tooth! kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush.

Using an appropriate tooth paste is very necessary for the health of our teeth. Tooth pastes which contain flouride help in keeping the teeth healthy by reducing the risk of tooth decay.

I usually have sprouts and fruits for dinner and that is as early as 7 in the evening. I have Roti dal and curry for lunch and cereals for breakfast. Do you think I should pop a multivitamin daily to make up for any vitamin deficiency if any. I have developed a mouth ucler leading me to believe maybe my present diet does not have sufficient vitamin. Please advice. If yes, which multivitamin?

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Ulcer is not always due to vitamin deficiency. It could also be due to stress or hormonal changes among other reasons. We dr's prescribe multivitamins to help healing and not because we suspect that your diet is deficient in vitamins. Till ulcer heals you can pop cap becosules twice daily and apply dologel ct gel on affected areas before meals for relief.
