Geriatric dentistry is an important part of our practice to ensure senior members of the community, can benefit from the oral health care we provide. As we get older we may find it harder to do simple physical tasks, including brushing our teeth or flossing. This can easily lead to tooth decay, inflammation and infection in the gums.
Geriatric dentistry is specially designed to provide targeted treatments to elderly patients. Geriatric dentistry also promotes the benefits of regular check-ups for senior patients, helping them to take steps to support their oral health.
