One San Antonio team of specialists is trying to provide specialized dental care to older members of the community.
The news provider MySanAntonio.com profiles Sarah Dirks who helps provide dental checkups and other services to the elderly, at times travelling to nursing homes or assisted living facilities. As such, she also uses wheelchair lifts for the immobile.
Dirks explains to the news service that her work "has a nice blend of dentistry and medicine" as she often helps fix jaws or teeth of those who have trouble eating.
Demand for senior dental care is increasing as the population begins to age and research should be done to find the right specialist near you.
Meanwhile, the American Dental Association advises that older Americans continue to monitor their dental health and start to examine the mouth for signs of oral cancer, which can include sores, swelling or discolored areas.

Keeping regular dental checkups can help prevent it from developing or spreading because a dentist can often catch the disease early. The ADA says those over 45 should remember to schedule these visits.
