Dental Services for Seniors

Seniors have some of the most diverse dental needs. As such, we provide many services designed to address age-specific concerns and keep teeth and gums healthy. Our team offers solutions to protect, prevent, restore, and enhance your smile.

We take time to recommend procedures and craft treatments personalized to your situation. With every service we provide, our top priority is to help preserve as much of your natural smile as possible.

Our Mission Viejo senior dental treatments include, but are not limited to:

We understand the value of convenience when it comes to your dental care. Our team is happy to provide our in-house VIP Blessed Membership Club! We have a variety of plans to choose from that include preventive care with no additional cost!

Why Do Seniors Need Age-Specific Dental Care?

Chronic illnesses like arthritis or diabetes and adverse side-effects from medications can increase the risk for dental issues. Receiving an exam and cleaning twice a year is vital for your oral health and general well-being, especially if you are over 60.

Our team conducts detailed consultations to discuss life changes, and those regarding your general health can impact your smile. We perform thorough yet gentle exams, checking everything from your teeth, gums, head, and neck for signs of concern. With digital x-rays, we can better identify and catch problems in their earliest stages.

We provide care that emphasizes prevention and education, informing seniors about common systemic diseases and the oral-systemic connection. Our dentists advise you about the best ways to care for your dental health at home and recommend services designed to keep you smiling with confidence. We work with you to create a plan for protecting your smile from common concerns seniors face like gum disease, tooth decay, and tooth loss.

Is Tooth Loss Preventable?

While we can help reduce the chances for tooth loss in most cases, it is not always avoidable. Missing teeth can result from advanced gum disease, infection, injury, necessary extraction, and other factors.

Fortunately, we provide versatile dentistry for seniors designed to replace missing teeth and rebuild your smile after tooth loss. Available restorations include dentures, crowns, bridges, and dental implants. To discover which solution is best for you, schedule a comfortable consultation with our team.

Dentures for Complete Smile Restoration

We recommend dentures when few or no healthy teeth remain in your smile. These restorations are best for replacing entire dentitions of missing teeth in the upper or lower jaws or both. Each consists of a set of porcelain or ceramic teeth that rest on a base of pink acrylic.

Our team works with you to design dentures that look, feel, and function like your natural smile. We understand that these restorations come with unique challenges. To better avoid the chance of yours becoming loose or dislodged, our dentists offer implant-supported dentures. We can replace all teeth missing in your smile using four to eight dental implants!

Same-Day Denture Repairs in Mission Viejo

Whether your appliance has become worn, broken, or damaged, we work to get you back to normalcy as quickly as possible. Our team has the experience and tools to fix the metal framework, clasps, and the acrylic base, and can also replace artificial teeth.

Cosmetic Services for Senior Smiles

We love helping individuals enjoy stunning smiles into their golden years. Whether you are looking for a few quick improvements or need a more comprehensive treatment plan, our team offers various cosmetic solutions customized to seniors.

Some of our most popular aesthetic services for seniors patients include:

Our team believes in providing solutions with a holistic approach. Many seniors are sensitive to dental materials that contain metal and mercury, such as amalgam. As such, we only offer treatments that consist of beautiful, safe, and lifelike materials.

Materials such as porcelain and composite are known for their ability to mimic natural enamel and blend seamlessly with the rest of the smile. Our dentists can also remove old amalgam fillings and metal restorations as needed.
