Senior Dental Care in Irvine, CA
Just as the rest of the body undergoes a variety of changes as the years pass, the teeth and gums are susceptible to the effects of advancing age. Seniors are typically more likely to experience oral health problems brought on by an inability to see a dentist regularly or difficulty brushing and flossing their teeth. Irvine dentist, Dr. Choi and the team at Smile by Design, offer an all-encompassing range of specialty senior dental care solutions to communities in Orange County, CA and nearby areas.
Special Oral Health Concerns for Seniors
In order to provide our senior patients with the personalized, effective dental care they need, our office is fully equipped with the latest in superior technology and comforting amenities. You can entrust the oral health and well-being of your family to the capable, experienced hands of the team at Smile by Design. Some of the most common issues we see in senior patients include:
- Periodontal disease caused by poor home hygiene
- Tooth decay and infection
- Teeth that become loose or fall out
- Deep discoloration due to loss of enamel
- Increased risk of oral cancer
- Oral thrush
- Irritation caused by ill-fitting dentures
- Complications associated with diabetes, cancer, and more
- Poor nutrition (often complicated by missing teeth)
Many people seem to accept tooth loss, gum disease, and other serious oral health conditions with the natural aging process. The fact is, however, that growing older does not necessarily mean that your oral health will begin to decline. Visiting our office every six months for a dental checkup and cleaning can greatly reduce your risk of developing these and other concerns for years to come.
