    ATLANTA, GA, December 05, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The dentists in Atlanta, East Cobb Dentistry, would like to talk about the best ways elderly residents can care for their teeth. Although oral health is important throughout our entire lives, the most critical phases are when we are young (teeth are still developing) and when we are old (oral health is more vulnerable to affliction). While a teenager or young adult may be able to get away with not brushing for a day or two, as disgusting as it may sound, an elderly person will be at a much higher risk for developing diseases such as gingivitis and tooth decay.

Keeping Your Oral Health in Check

As such, keeping current on one's dental check-ups and notifying one's dentist of any changes in oral health is extremely important. You should see your dentist at least twice a year when younger, but your doctor will likely recommend coming in on a more regular basis (perhaps once every two months) so they can better track and prevent potential problems.

The most common oral health problems that affect the elderly are darkened teeth, dry mouth, root decay, and denture-induced stomatitis. The latter is caused when dentures are made and/or placed improperly, and can lead to painful inflammation in the gum line in the area underneath where the denture is installed. According to Ken Tralongo, CEO of Tralongo Management and the Atlanta dentist' office, "Caring for your teeth as you age does not require a lot of work. Brush, floss, and use mouthwash twice a day, and listen to what your dentist says. If you notice any sudden changes in your health, contact them immediately to get an examination. Given the delicate state of your gum tissue and tooth enamel, using a soft-bristled brush is recommended."
