While individuals of any age may experience tooth decay, certain age-related processes can increase your risk. Be sure to visit your dentist regularly and watch this video to learn about oral health risks for seniors.
Your teeth are covered with a durable coating called enamel, which helps to protect them from damage and infection. The roots of your teeth, on the other hand, are covered with cementum. You may notice that your gums recede as you age, and this can expose your cementum. Be sure to practice proper dental hygiene and meet with your dentist regularly to combat this risk.
