Q: Am I less likely to have in
dental problems as an adult B M
than when I was younger? HUE fli
A: Unfortunately, the possibility of having dental problems doesn’t nec
essarily diminish as we age. Although the baby boomer generation
has benefited from water fluorldaUon programs and fluoride tooth
paste, problems still occur. Gum disease, for instance, remains a
problem for adults. Seventy-five percent of American adults have
some form of gum disease, and 14% between 45 to 54 years old have
severe gum disease. Signs and symptoms from soft-tissue diseases
like cold sores are common in adults. According to the Centers for
Disease Control & Prevention, almost 20 percent of adults between 25
and 44 years old are affected by soft-Ussue aliments. Every year more
than 400,000 cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy are afflicted
with oral problems: for example, painful mouth ulcers, loss of taste
and dry mouth as a result of malfunctioning salivary glands. The CDC
reports that employed adults lose more than 164 million hours of
work each year because of oral health problems. So the message Is:
keep brushing, flossing and visiting your dentist regularly. Don’t sit
back and wait for problems to happen.
