Preventing Root Caries Among Seniors – SOC

Wednesday, Sep. 14th 2022 2:43 PM

In a prior post dated August 10th 2013, we talked about how seniors have a greater risk for root caries.  Although root caries is the major cause of tooth loss in older adults prevention is still the best solution.

If your gums have started to recede you should make sure to take measures to prevent root decay.  Some ways of doing this is to avoid sweets since sugar will promote dental plaque causing bacteria found on your roots.

Dry mouth is also a factor that can increase your chances of getting root decay. Make sure to treat dry mouth if you have it. By drinking lots of water, sucking on sugar free candy or chewing on sugar free gum are some ways to help relive dry mouth.

Make sure to maintain regular dental visits, by doing it will allow your dentist to check for tooth rood decay.  Other preventive measures that a dentist can do is gum disease treatment, dental cleaning, and if necessary gum grafts.

Also remember that preventive care starts at home by having proper dental and oral health care habits.  Brushing  you teeth twice a day, flossing daily and using a mouthwash that fights against plaque.

Share of Cost – The Increase Risk of Oral Cancer

Sunday, Sep. 11th 2022 6:52 AM

Oral cancer, which includes lip, oral cavity, and pharynx cancer, is a particular concern for persons 65 years of age and older, because they are seven times more likely to be diagnosed with oral cancer than persons under age 65.

In 1997, 4,775 people 65 years and older died as a result of oral cancer. More older adults died from oral cancer than from skin cancer (3,978)

As with other cancers, survival improves when the cancer is diagnosed at an early stage rather than at a later, more advanced stage. Because patients with an early stage of oral cancer rarely have pain or other symptoms, detecting an early oral cancer is primarily dependent upon the clinician providing a comprehensive oral cancer examination.
