You don't have to be young to get a cavity

A recent New York Times article pointed out that tooth decay is on the rise in children, and many dentists are reporting that kids are coming in for their first dental visit with not just one, but multiple cavities. Unfortunately, it's not just children who have to worry about getting a cavity, as tooth decay can strike people of any age.

For example, The Palm Beach Post recently spoke to Mitchel Senft, D.M.D., about whether seniors need to be concerned about cavities.

"Sorry to say, but as a senior, your ability to properly clean your mouth is not as proficient as it once was, due to loss of dexterity as we age.Your teeth have had many years of function and, therefore, have a lot of wear and irregular surfaces, which allow for easy accumulation of plaque," said Senft, quoted by the news source.

The dentist recommended that seniors be sure to brush, floss and visit their dental health professional to ensure that they do not have poor oral hygiene.
