As years go by, people live longer and therefore preserve dental pieces for longer. We adults progressively suffer a deterioration of our oral health, produced both by the aging of the oral cavity and by diseases that worsen over time.
In the dental field, there is an area that is specifically responsible for this condition, called geriatric:
Geriatric is defined as “oral health care for people aged 65 years or older and for people of any age, whose general physical condition is significantly influenced by degenerative processes and diseases that are usually associated with the elderly person.
A treatment that begins with prevention
Prevention is the best solution to avoid age-related dental problems. In this way, we will be able to reduce the damage caused to the maximum.
Going to the necessary revisions in the clinic is a fundamental aspect for our teeth to stay healthy. At the clinic, the doctors will issue a diagnosis and warn you of all the problems that may arise. Doing so will prevent you from having to solve the problem in time, without having to resort to other more expensive or complicated solutions.
The detection and treatment of bacterial plaque is a crucial point to keep our teeth healthy, since it is one of the main causes of many types of alterations associated with aging.
