As is the case with many myths, this one reflects a vast misunderstanding of a related fact.  Statistics do support the fact that over 50% of people over 65 years of age have been diagnosed with a least one chronic disease.  Typically, these include arthritis or hypertension, although cardiovascular disease and diabetes are also among the most common.

However, to portray this age group as sick and miserable is certainly a misrepresentation!

Thanks to improved medical therapies and health styles, most of these individuals enjoy a much greater quality of life than could ever have been expected by those in earlier generations with the same diagnoses.  To continue on this positive paths, older patients should continue to seek out the dental services they need as they age, especially as their home care becomes somewhat more challenging.
