If the common dental problems for seniors listed above are what you’re facing, then here are a few solutions you can try:

  1. Use a special toothpaste and brush made for a sensitive tooth.
  2. Get treated with a root canal in case of dental decay.
  3. Get professional dental cleanups and whitening so that your teeth do not look stained.
  4. Visit your dentist regularly and give him/her entire history of your dental problems. During an oral exam, your dentist will check your face and neck for skin discoloration, moles, sores, your bite, your jaw, your lymph nodes and salivary glands, your inner cheeks (for infections, ulcers, traumatic injuries), your tongue and other interior surfaces like floor of the mouth, soft and hard palate, gum tissue, and your teeth (for decay, condition of fillings, and cracks). If you wear dentures or other dental appliances, then your dentist will ask some questions about the time when you wear your dentures and the time when you take them out in case they are removable.
