As we age and mature, our dental needs change. Though prevention is still a necessary step in maintaining healthy teeth and gums, as we age, we find ourselves having to deal with more challenging health risks. Many of our senior citizens take multiple medications each day. These medications have side effects that can change the chemistry of their mouths - for example, many medications cause dry mouth or more acidic saliva. All of these changes can accelerate tooth decay and or gum disease progression.
Geriatric Dentistry - Mature Patients Have Different Needs
As a dental professional with experience working with retired persons and seniors, I’m able to provide elderly dental patients with a variety of options that they might not see with other dental professionals. Once we have done a full review of your overall health including medications, diet, exercise, surgeries and or other health concerns, we will evaluate the health of your gums and teeth. Whether you are looking for bi-annual dental exams and cleanings, laser dentist, laser gum surgery or dental dentures and implants, we can help you get and keep your smile beautiful.
Dental Implants & Mini Dental Implants to Retain Dentures
There have been significant advancements over the years for mature dental patients. One example are dental implants and mini dental implants. These new and much smaller dental implants give a denture wearer another option to securely hold their dentures in place. With a simple one day implant procedure we can give you a secure, snap in, removable option for your denture. Imagine no longer using denture adhesive. No longer worrying about your denture falling out or becoming loose at important events. Dental implants are not for everyone, but a quick visit in our office and we’ll be able to tell if you are a candidate.
