Experts: Older adults need better dental habits

Experts: Older adults need better dental habits According to the CDC, there is an increasing amount of older Americans who have poor dental habits and nearly 23 percent of individuals between the ages of 65 and 74 have diseases related to their oral health. Efforts to raise awareness about this ongoing problems are increasing.

One group, the Delta Dental of New Jersey Foundation, is running a campaign to motivate senior citizens and their family members to develop better dental habits, New Jersey On-line reports. The year-long project is aimed at promoting the importance through public service announcements and the goal is to create an increased amount of individuals to have better overall health and oral hygiene.

Andrew Greenberger, one of the dentists participating in the campaign, told the website that "dental care doesn't stop when you get older," and whether an individual has real teeth or dentures, "poor oral health can lead to serious disease."

Better oral hygiene could benefit millions of adults as the CDC reports that 25 percent of individuals over age 60 do not have any of their natural teeth.

Older adults could improve their oral hygiene by finding low-cost care. Discount dental plans provide affordable dental health for individuals and their families.
