Celebrate Grandparent’s Day with a Commitment to Oral Health
September 13th is National Grandparent’s Day, and Hardin Advanced Dentistry would like to wish a very happy, fun-filled celebration to all the grandmothers and grandfathers of Cincinnati. Family dentist Tara Hardin works closely with patients of all ages and walks of life, and understands the particular dental needs of each generation that passes through her office.
To help ensure our community’s grandparents enjoy healthy smiles for years to come, we’ve listed a few common oral issues our patients experience in their golden years. If you experience any of these dental problems, our family dentist can help with a variety of solutions, from simple fixes to a complete smile makeover.
- Tooth Decay: Certain medications for blood pressure, Parkinson’s disease and allergies can reduce the amount of saliva in your mouth, causing several oral problems, including tooth decay.
- Gum Disease: The risks of gum disease typically manifest in later years. The Academy of Periodontology reports that gum disease is linked to osteoporosis, heart conditions, diabetes, respiratory disease and even cancer.
- Tooth Loss: Almost 30 percent of Americans have lost all of their teeth by the time they reach the age of 65. Tooth decay, gum disease, injury and natural wear due to aging are all common factors in senior tooth loss.
- Tooth Discoloration: Teeth begin to yellow and darken naturally over time, due to years of staining and normal wear. Teeth whitening treatments can often be completed within an hour, restoring your bright, youthful smile.
