Dental conditions such as tooth decay, inflammation and bleeding in gums occur in older people due to inadequate nutrition, eating habits, usage of medications, poor oral care, and so on. Practicing good dental habits such as brushing the teeth twice daily with fluoride toothpaste, flossing the teeth every day and undergoing regular and professional dental cleanings can reduce the risk of dental problems. Identifying such symptoms early can help prevent dental conditions in the long run.
