Let’s face it, once you reach a certain age, things change. Yes there’s the aches and pains that come with time, the forgetting of why you entered a room (which is actually not a sign of losing memory but having a healthy, active brain), but did you know that what’s happening in your mouth changes too?
One of the biggest problems is dry mouth. While it may seem like a mild inconvenience, dry mouth is actually the cause of some pretty awful problems. Your saliva is you mouths protection against the acid caused by eating and the bacteria in your mouth. It also prevents demineralization of your teeth, keeping them dense and tough. So basically, without you saliva, you get all the dental problems.
Another big one to look out for, and a reason to go to you dentist for regular check-ups, is that once we reach a certain age the chance of mouth cancer goes up considerably. If that seems far-fetched, keep in mind 43,000 Americans are diagnosed with some form of mouth cancer every year.
