As you age, seniors may need to make a few changes in the way they care for their teeth and gums. You are never too old to have healthy teeth and gums and it is still important to continue seeing your dentist! Your dentist wants to ensure you are maintaining a healthy mouth.
Seniors have particular focus in dentistry that needs to be catered to including prevention of illnesses that can be rooted in infections in the mouth. Our dental services related specifically to seniors are also focused on maintaining or even improving the quality of life.
Some dental issues arise with age including:
Providing comfortable dentures, procedures and education, allows daily functions in life such as talking or eating less wearisome and a better quality of life over time.
An accident, disease or poor oral health can leave you with minimal healthy teeth or none at all. Using these artificial replacements for your natural teeth and gums maybe an option.
A complete denture, known as a full denture, or some refer to them as false teeth or plate, is a removable appliance used when all teeth within a jaw have been lost and need to be replaced for normal mouth function. Complete dentures are constructed to replace the missing teeth in an arch, hence it is an exclusively tissue-supported prosthesis.
