Special Concerns of Senior Patients

As an older patient, you may have very specific concerns. Often, certain medications or physical health conditions can impact the health of your teeth. Additionally, you may have a weaker immune system, making you more susceptible to gum disease and related conditions. Accordingly, senior dental problems can include:

  • Missing teeth
  • Receding gums, often leading to dental sensitivity
  • Dental infection
  • Tooth decay
  • Dry mouth

It is important to address these ailments as soon as possible. As they grow worse, they can greatly compromise your overall oral health. Certain dental problems can also affect your physical well-being. For example, missing teeth can make it difficult to eat a complete, nutritious diet. Untreated gum disease can cause bacteria to spread to other parts of your body through your bloodstream. It can also increase your risk for a heart attack or stroke.

Treatments to Meet Senior Dental Needs

Our dentists are equipped to treat all manner of dental conditions. They carry out a diverse array of procedures, many of which are especially beneficial for seniors. These treatments include dental crowns, bridges, dentures (implant-supported or traditional), tooth-colored fillings, and scaling and root planing.

We are particularly proud to provide dental implants, especially because Dr. Salem can perform all stages of implant dentistry in one location. Implants are the most secure and durable way to replace missing teeth. They can also prevent jawbone recession, and they can protect your remaining natural teeth.

At our practice, we take a comprehensive approach to dentistry by customizing treatment plans to enhance our patients’ overall health and quality of life.

In addition to restorative dentistry, we also offer cosmetic care for seniors. As you grow older, you are more prone to dental discoloration. We can supply teeth whitening, dental bonding, or related treatments for a brighter and younger-looking smile. We can even perform a smile makeover by combining several cosmetic procedures.
