The Benefits of Geriatric Dentistry

Enhanced Comfort and Function

Geriatric dentistry provides solutions for age-related dental issues. This allows for enhanced comfort and improved function when it comes to eating and speaking.

Prevention of Oral Diseases

Regular dental care helps us detect and prevent oral diseases, which are more common as we age.

Improved Overall Health

There's a strong connection between oral health and general health. Effective geriatric dental care contributes significantly to the overall well-being of older adults.

The Geriatric Dentistry Treatment Process

Comprehensive Oral Assessment

The first step is a comprehensive oral assessment, where we carefully examine not just your teeth and gums, but also consider any existing medical conditions and medications that might impact your oral health. This in-depth evaluation helps us to understand the full picture of your dental needs and any special considerations required due to age-related changes.

Personalized Treatment Planning

Following the assessment, we develop a personalized treatment plan that specifically addresses your individual needs. This may include preventive care strategies, restorative treatments like fillings or dentures, and even modifications to existing dental appliances for enhanced comfort. We also discuss lifestyle factors and provide guidance on maintaining oral health at home, ensuring a holistic approach to your dental care.

Ongoing Care and Maintenance

Ongoing care is a critical part of geriatric dentistry. We ensure regular follow-ups to monitor oral health, adjust treatments as necessary, and provide gentle professional cleanings. Our aim is to maintain optimal oral health, manage any new challenges that arise, and ensure that your dental needs are met comprehensively and compassionately as you age.
