Maintaining Good Oral Health as you Age
Maintaining good oral health as we age is essential for our overall well-being. As we grow older, our oral health needs change, making regular dental care necessary. Proper oral hygiene, including brushing twice a day, flossing, and visiting the dentist regularly, helps prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss. Good oral health promotes proper nutrition, allowing seniors to enjoy a balanced diet and maintain a healthy lifestyle. It also supports clear speech and enhances social interactions. By prioritizing oral health throughout life, seniors can enjoy a comfortable, confident smile, reduce the risk of systemic health issues, and maintain a high quality of life well into their golden years.
Dental check-ups are routine appointments with our dentist to assess and maintain oral health. During these visits, we examine your teeth, gums, and mouth for signs of decay, gum disease, or other oral issues. Dental check-ups are crucial for early detection and prevention of dental problems.
Periodontics & Implants
Periodontics is the practice of addressing, preventing, and treating diseases of the soft tissue in the mouth and gums, including periodontitis. Secure tooth replacements used to replace an entire arch of teeth, a
single tooth, and everything in between, are called dental implants.
TMJ & Sleep Therapy
TMJ is the temporomandibular joint, or the joint that is the connection between the rest of the head and the lower jaw. Sleep-related TMJ disorders can occur when the jaw becomes stressed, injured, or misaligned, which can be the result of many different factors involved in a patient’s oral health.
