Addressing the Special Needs of Seniors
Just like our bodies, our teeth and gums show signs of wear and tear and aging. Fillings can crack or loosen and need to be replaced before cavities set in. Plaque may build up, resulting in a need for a thorough professional cleaning. Years of coffee, tea, or tobacco consumption stain teeth, and they lose their attractive luster. Seniors may take certain medications that result in less flow of saliva through the mouth.
With regular check-ups, we can stay on top of any problem and take care of it in the earlier stages. We always encourage proper daily maintenance and good nutrition to help keep your teeth and gums in good shape. If your gums start to bleed or any teeth feel loose, please let us know immediately.
