    Tips to help Older Adults with Oral Health

    More visits to the dentist are required especially among older adults. They should discuss with their dentists on the frequency of visits for oral checkups. It’s important, as oral health affects overall health, including risk of heart disease and diabetes.

    Key takeaways:

    • Brushing with fluoride toothpaste and flossing will help to remove dental plaque that may lead to gum disease and tooth loss.
    • Check for changes in the mouth such as numbness, sores, lumps, even difficulty chewing — and immediately see a dentist or doctor.
    • Dry mouth is a concern especially for people with diabetes. It can lead to infection, cavities and difficulty when talking or swallowing.

    It’s especially important to take care of your teeth and gums if you have a health condition like diabetes or heart disease – or if you are taking medicines that can cause oral health problems.
