Tailored Dental Care for Seniors

We aim to provide you with access to a wide variety of effective senior dental treatments that aim to prevent chronic conditions from impacting your dental condition. During your routine checkups, we'll monitor your smile over time, treat dental decay, and look for signs of new or worsening gum disease. Depending on your specific issues, our team may recommend you come in for appointments more frequently.

In addition to our skilled preventive care services, we're proud to offer a wide range of restorative services to return you to full oral function. These include:

  • Dental Implant Restorations
  • Dental Crowns, including CEREC crowns for same-day treatments
  • Dental Bridges
  • Dentures and Partials, both traditional and implant-supported

Addressing Common Issues in Senior Dentistry

Changes in seniors' oral health, like reduced saliva flow, weakened enamel, and thickened tooth roots, can create environments within your oral structure where bacteria can thrive. This increases your vulnerability to problems like widespread tooth decay and gum disease. While these scenarios can lead to serious dental problems, our team works hard to help you avoid them entirely or offers proven treatments to minimize their impact on oral health.

Restorative Dentistry For Seniors

Missing or damaged teeth can impact your smile's function and aesthetics. Our extensive restorative dental treatments aim to revitalize your smile, improve your long-term oral health, and enhance your overall quality of life. One of the unique aspects of our restorative dentistry for seniors is our CEREC machine, which can deliver beautiful, durable restorations in just one appointment. Whether you're getting a traditional bridge or a CEREC same-day crown, you can rest assured you'll get a beautiful restoration built to last.

As a senior, how often should I visit the dentist?

We strongly recommend diligently attending your regularly scheduled dental checkups. For routine needs, we schedule appointments twice a year. Depending on individual requirements, our team may recommend older patients visit every 3-4 months, especially if they're dealing with issues like gum disease, to maintain optimal oral health.

Absolutely. One example of this is that many older patients take medications that can lead to dry mouth, which in turn can increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Our experienced team can offer strategies and recommend products to alleviate dry mouth symptoms and promote oral health.

We're committed to identifying and resolving problems associated with aging restorative dental work, offering innovative solutions to keep your smile functional and healthy.

One of the great things about dental implants is that there's no upper age limit on getting them. While there are some considerations about whether they're the right restoration for you, dental implants are a viable option if you're in good oral and physical health, regardless of your age.
