Regular Dental Care for Seniors
Just as our bodies slow and show the unmistakable signs of age, so do our teeth. Even your fillings, crowns, and bridge work can weaken, crack, or show excessive wear. Fortunately, with regular checkups, we can help you combat the more serious side effects. We offer treatments to reverse the dark staining caused by years of consuming acidic beverages or tobacco or by the buildup of plaque. Simple products are now available to alleviate the reduction of saliva caused by some medications. As we age, the potential hazards of gum disease and root decay increase. Daily cleaning and good nutrition, to maintain healthy gums, is even more critical for us as seniors. If you are experiencing red, irritated gums, bleeding, or your teeth start to feel loose, please contact us.
