Many edentulous (without teeth) patients believe that once they have dentures, their oral health concerns are over. In fact, patients who need dentures also need to spend time caring for their prosthetic teeth just as they would a natural smile, and older patients have to be especially careful. As we age, the decay-causing bacteria counts in our mouth go up, and less saliva, the mouth’s natural bacteria neutralizer, is produced. Patients over 65 on average take at least 3 prescription medications every day, and one of the main causes of dry mouth is prescription medication. Luckily, dental patients in Owings Mills can rest easy, if they follow a few simple denture care dos and don’ts from the caring team at Diamond Dental.

When you need Owings Mills general dentistry to keep your smile clean, healthy, and beautiful, the friendly staff at Diamond Dental is here to help you get the smile you desire, but did you know that the time you spend caring for your teeth now could save your life later? According to Dr. Joan Otomoa-Corgel, president of the American Academy of Periodontology, periodontal disease effects half of US adults. That’s more than twice the number affected by diabetes annually, and gum disease is linked to kidney disease, heart disease, stroke, alzheimer’s and diabetes. Actually, many patients first discover they suffer from diabetes while they are being treated for periodontal disease. The research based support for the connection between gum disease and various chronic illnesses grows annually, and it seems only a matter of time before medical researchers discover the exact causal relationships. At Diamond Dental of Owings Mills, our dentistry team is here to help you achieve and maintain optimal oral health for a lifetime. Best of all, we may just be adding years to that life in the process. Call to find out more or to schedule an appointment with your Owings Mills general dentist today.
