Dental health could be connected to overall wellbeing in seniors
Updated: 10/16/2009 3:00:29 PM

Dental health could be connected to overall wellbeing in seniors Dentists and physicians who specialize in treating the elderly will discuss the consequences of poor dental health for seniors.

The New York Academy of Sciences will host a discussion involving both dentists and physicians that will address the associations between dental hygiene and physical health in seniors.

"Today's program creates a forum for open dialogue among scientists, clinicians and healthcare leaders to exchange knowledge and ideas regarding the oral healthcare issues unique to our senior population," said Beth Truett, the CEO of Oral Health America, a non-profit organization that aims to get people the care they need. "Dental and medical care providers rarely have a chance to communicate about collaborative treatment options."

The meeting is supposed to help attendees better understand how important a part of routine healthcare dental checkups can be.

In seniors, tooth loss is sometimes caused by gum disease, according to Tooth loss can lead to further complications, like developing an uneven jawbone, for example. The website says that seniors should brush twice a day and floss regularly to maintain a healthy mouth.
