Dental Services for Seniors

One of the best things about dental services is that while there are general procedures that are availed by people of all ages, many are specialized to cater to certain populations or age groups. One such example is seniors dental services, a branch of dentistry that specializes in the maintenance and dental care for seniors who will require special attention to their ageing teeth.

Seniors dental services are designed to address a host of dental concerns that come with advanced age, such as:

  • Teeth darkening – as stain-causing beverages and food wear out the tooth enamel and thin it out, it causes the dark yellow dentin to show through.
  • Root decay – when the tooth’s root is exposed to acids, it causes decay and those areas may be (or become) prone to infection.
  • Gum disease – after a lifetime of bad habits such as smoking and poor hygiene, gum disease can develop in senior citizens and will require a special type of dental care for seniors.
  • Tooth loss – In later years, teeth become weaker and it is common for seniors to experience tooth loss which will require implants or other alternatives to replace their missing teeth.
  • Stomatitis caused by dentures – over time, dentures can become ill-fitting due to changes in the shape of the mouth or poor oral hygiene, which will require treatment and readjusting. Otherwise, the senior citizen might experience infection and inflammation due to the fungus build up under the denture.

Dental Care for Seniors

There are many more conditions that will require the elderly to avail of seniors dental services, but what largely makes up a part of this branch of dentistry is the prevention of illnesses that can be rooted in infections in the mouth. Dental services for seniors are also focused on improving the quality of life of senior citizens by giving them options for comfortable dentures and procedures that will allow simple acts such as speaking or eating less troublesome for them. Our experienced Chestermere dentists are happy to treat patients of all ages.

Dear Patients,

We are pleased to WELCOME YOU BACK! We are practicing SAFE DENTISTRY!

Rest assured that we have taken steps above what was required. After all, your health is our highest priority. We are finally OPEN and look forward to seeing you again soon!

OUR NEW HEALTH AND SAFETY PROTOCOL:

  • When we speak with you regarding your appointment, we will be asking you additional screening questions. Patients who exhibit any symptoms will need to postpone their treatment.
  • When you arrive to your appointment, please wait in your car until your appointment time and bring as little as possible into the office with you.
  • If you have a mask or face covering, we encourage you to wear one to your appointment.
  • We will ask that you sanitize/wash your hands with soap and water upon entering the office and before leaving.
  • There will be a consent form for patients to sign upon arrival and we want you to know that the guidelines in place currently have staff member signing off on a daily consent that ensures they are ready and prepared to provide treatment in the safest possible way.

We want to assure everyone that our office takes the safety and health of our patients, their families, team members and doctors very seriously. Although our operations will be slightly different today than they were previously, we are excited to finally welcome you all back in a slow and safe manner.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time of transition to the new normal.

Sincerely,
Your Dental Team
