Geriatric dentistry

Geriatric dentistry is a specialized field focusing on the dental care and oral health of elderly individuals, addressing the unique challenges that come with aging. As people age, they often face complex dental issues due to the cumulative effects of wear and tear, medication side effects, and systemic health conditions such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Common problems include tooth loss, gum disease, dry mouth, and oral cancer. Geriatric dentists are trained to manage these issues with sensitivity to the physical and cognitive limitations that may affect elderly patients. Oral health in the elderly is closely linked to their overall well-being. Poor oral health can lead to pain, difficulty in eating, malnutrition, and a decline in quality of life. Additionally, oral infections and diseases can exacerbate systemic conditions, creating a cyclical impact on health. Geriatric dentistry involves preventive care, such as regular cleanings and exams, as well as restorative treatments like dentures, implants, and bridges to replace missing teeth.
