Keeping up with good dental health practices can affect your entire wellbeing. You are not only able to eat nutritious meals, you’ll have confidence when smiling or talking. Advanced Family Dentistry offers a wide range of dental services for seniors, from regular cleanings and exams to dental implants and oral surgery.
Seniors may have a hard time finding a local dentist that is taking new patients. We are! We’ll schedule you in for an initial exam and x-rays and review your current dental health. We’ll then create a personalized treatment plan for each new patient. Depending upon what we discover, it could be as simple as routine visits. If, however, you need more advanced services, you’ll find that we offer most everything you need to restore or protect your dental health.
Regular Dental Services for Seniors
We encourage our older clients to maintain a regular twice-a-year checkup and cleaning. This helps us to monitor your ongoing overall health as well as watch for any changes in your oral health. Use this time to bring up changes in your health, and to talk about dental issues that might be concerning you. We want to ensure that your anxieties are addressed.
As we age, we sometimes lose teeth. You may need to replace a tooth, or require a full or partial denture to restore your smile. Advanced Family Dentistry offers restorative dentistry to maintain your teeth and the supporting bone and tissues. We can discuss services like endodontics, periodontics or artificial tooth replacement options.
Want to improve your smile? Talk to us about straightening or whitening your teeth, or about porcelain laminate veneers. There’s no need to be embarrassed about how you look or to hide that beautiful smile. We have a number of dental services for seniors to improve your confidence through cosmetic dentistry.
Senior Dental Issues
As you age, you become prone to oral health problems like a dry mouth, a diminished sense of taste, decaying teeth and roots, or darkening teeth, along with more serious issues like gum disease , inflammation or oral cancer. Good oral hygiene, with daily brushing and flossing, along with regular dental visits can catch any problems early.
Dental Emergency Services for Seniors
Have you broken a tooth? Are you in pain from an abscessed tooth? Were you in an accident? When you have a dental emergency, we’re here. Please call us immediately to discuss the severity and to determine whether we need to bring you into the office the same day, refer you to a hospital, or schedule an emergency appointment.
Does Medicare Cover Dental Services for Seniors?
Most dental care is not covered under Medicare, with a few exceptions like when major surgery is required following a severe injury or illness. Seniors who desire dental coverage should look into an independent insurance plan. Insurance plans we accept are listed on our website. If you don’t see the one you want, ask us.
