Canadians of all ages can experience good oral health and benefit from routine professional dental care.
Senior dentistry or geriatric dentistry provides dental care to older adults involving diagnosis, prevention, management and treatment of problems associated with age so they can maintain a happy and healthy smile.
Dental care for seniors includes different attention. Seniors have a higher likelihood to experience a host of oral health issues resulting from the natural aging process.
As the body ages, you may start experiencing problems with your teeth and gums through no fault of your own. Routine dental visits can assist seniors in caring for the well-being of their teeth.
If you’re a senior headed for a check-up, your dentist should conduct a thorough history and dental exam.
