Protect teeth from the effects of aging...

Our teeth, like the rest of our bodies, change as we age. Some of the most common dental issues faced by older adults are:

* Cavities caused by dry mouth as a side effect from medications.
* Periodontal (gum) disease caused by genetics, poor hygiene, tobacco use, medical conditions such as diabetes or some medications.
* Oral cancer caused by genetics, tobacco use, excessive alcohol use, excessive sun exposure or human papillomavirus (HPV).
