Dental Benefit – As people age, subtle changes occur in the mouth. 

Saturday, Jan. 21st 2023 6:26 AM

Many seniors suffer from dry mouth. Dry mouth is a condition that occurs when the salivary glands do not provide enough saliva to keep the mouth moist. Dry mouth can lead to tooth decay, increased rates of gum disease, burning mouth syndrome, and trouble speaking, swallowing and tasting food.  

Often times dry mouth is caused by the prescription drugs seniors are taking. More than 400 drugs, many popular with seniors, can interfere with good dental health. Seniors should let a dental professional know what medications they are taking
