Dental Care for Seniors
As we mature, our teeth tend to require more attention and care. Chips and cracks are common due to the wear and tear that occurs when we age.
For many, a lot of fillings have been present for 30-40 years which can leak or crack over this period. Your dentist can easily identify any tooth crack lines that may be coming and advise early care and treatment.
Please note that there are many medications, (such as blood pressure) that can give a ‘dry-mouth side effect. This can cause tooth decay often in the root of tooth cavities. We encourage mature and elderly members of our community to book in for regular dental care every 6 months for a general clean and checkups to ensure good oral health.
