Dental Care for Seniors

Advanced Family Dentistry offers a comprehensive range of services for seniors to help keep their smiles functional and healthy in their later years. In addition to regular checkups and cleaning, we take special care with our older patients to ensure that their anxieties about their dental health are addressed. If issues are found, we implement an aggressive treatment plan to alleviate problems and restore good dental health.

Some of the more common conditions seniors experience include:

  • Dry mouth from aging, medication or reduced saliva flow
  • Gum disease, periodontitis and bone loss
  • Oral cancer of the mouth, throat or tongue
  • Tooth loss

I highly recommend Dr Kim.

My family has been seeing Dr. Kim, and his staff since at least 2008. His staff is loyal and Helen, his wife is the office manager. They are friendly and welcoming at each visit. Helen and I have exchanged book recommendations and children’s stories over the years and I always enjoy seeing her even if I am dreading the dental procedure that awaits me. I highly recommend Dr Kim and his office for any dental needs. I have had many teeth replaced and several root canals. Dr. Kim prides himself in learning new technology and providing his patients with the continued benefits that advancing dentistry has to offer. He continues to enjoy learning in his chosen profession and is constantly moving his practice forward with the newest technologies. I have not only seen this but benefited over the years between procedures. My youngest son, Eric had his wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Kim. My oldest son had the procedure done by an oral surgeon at much greater cost and greater discomfort. Eric’s wisdom teeth were removed by Dr. Kim in the summer of 2015, and he presented less swelling and pain then my older son’s did four years prior.
