Dental Concerns for Adults 40 – 60 and 60 Plus

According to the American Dental Association, people in this age group have three or more decayed or missing teeth as a result of untreated oral health problems.

When adults over 60 neglect any part of their oral health, there can be even more severe consequences than decayed or missing teeth.

Disease Control with Good Oral Health Practices

It has been proven time and again that neglectful oral health habits will lead to more serious health issues as we age.

Although good oral health habits should be a part of your young developmental years, consider the age of 40 the foundation of your overall health patterns for the years to come. We all know that as we age, we are susceptible to changes in the overall functioning of our immune system, our bone health and heart health. These facts make it vitally important to be diligent in the care of our teeth and gums.

As we have discussed in several of our previous News posts, bacteria in the gums can seriously affect the health of your teeth, gums and, by entering the body, bacteria can affect vital organs that determine if we are aging in good health or in bad health.
