Considerations When Caring for Teeth of Older Adults
When caring for teeth at any age, you need to make sure to take care of them properly. Brushing becomes more difficult as we age, which can result in tooth loss or increased tooth decay. Getting a toothbrush with a bigger handle can make this easier as can using an electric toothbrush. Flossing can also be more difficult. To get around this, you may want to consider using handheld flossers as they can get into tight spaces more easily than arthritic fingers.
