Q: What does my oral health have to do with the rest of my health?
Good oral health is essential to overall health and wellness. As the gateway to the rest of your body, the health of your mouth, including your teeth and gums, can be an important indicator of overall health and can also determine how susceptible you are to other illnesses or chronic conditions. Just as food, drink, and medications enter your body through your mouth, so can bacteria and viruses. If your gums and teeth aren’t healthy, it becomes easier for these bacteria and viruses to then enter your bloodstream and impact the rest of your body. In fact, there have been numerous studies linking poor oral health to numerous inflammatory diseases including endocarditis, cardiovascular disease, and pneumonia. Regular dental visits, as well as routine home care including brushing twice a day and flossing, are essential to keeping the mouth free of germs that can spread to the rest of the body.
Q: What are your tips for better oral hygiene at home for women over 60?
In addition to regular dental visits, maintaining your oral health at home by brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and rinsing your mouth are key. Self-care plays an important role here as well. Hydrate frequently with water, make time to do things you enjoy and make sure to smile frequently. Better self-care routines can help improve your mental state and can even help fight depression and anxiety. Plus, the simple act of smiling can immediately boost your mood, reduce stress, and strengthen your social connections with others. When you take good care of your teeth, you naturally smile more.
A healthy diet and vitamin supplement support are also critical to your oral health and overall health. In fact, there is increasing evidence indicating that malnutrition and lack of vitamins and minerals are underlying causes of periodontal disease, which increases in those over 60.
Q: According to the CDC and Prevention, half of adults age 30 and older suffer from some form of gum disease. What are the warning signs of gum disease? What can adults do to prevent the disease?
Gum disease and tooth loss is one of the most common diseases in adults. The warning signs could be halitosis, bleeding gums, gum pockets, tooth mobility, pus, food getting stuck, gum recession, and pain in the gums. One of the most important ways to prevent gum disease is to get regular dental check-ups and cleanings with your hygienist including gum pocket measurements. These measurements can assess the health of your gum tissue. Deeper pockets can collect bacteria, cause detachment of the gums around each tooth, which can lead to tooth loss. To prevent this, your dentist will recommend simple oral hygiene instructions with products and treatments to reduce bacteria and increase the healing of the gum tissue.
Q: What is teeth sensitivity and what can I do to improve the strength of my teeth?
Teeth sensitivity may occur when enamel wears away from the outer layer of the teeth, exposing the inner dentin tooth structure. Exposed dentin, also known as recession, is an open channel which leads directly to the nerve of the tooth. This exposure causes tooth sensitivity and may occur due to normal maturation and can also be exacerbated with acidic foods and drinks like soda. To improve the strength of your teeth, stay away from foods and drinks that have acidic pH levels like colas and seltzers.
