Geriatric Dentistry: Respect and Exceptional Care for Elderly Patients
Texas Denture Clinic specializes in the provision of oral health services for senior citizens living in the Dallas/ Fort Worth area. Effective geriatric dentistry requires the delivery of multiple scientific disciplines to promote a lifetime of dental health. Our approach to safeguarding the oral health of elderly patients is personalized and comprehensive.
Serving older patients often presents unique medical and dental care. Dr. Damon is accustomed to serving patients with special sensory, ambulatory or social needs. It simply isn’t necessary for seniors with physical or mental disabilities, serious dental issues or limited financial resources to forego the professional dental care they deserve. Oral hygiene complications frequently lead to depression, malnutrition and other debilitating disorders.
At Texas Denture Clinic, we understand how aging, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and medications can aggravate oral hygiene and promote dental decay. Periodontal disease can seriously impair the ability of a loved one to taste, chew or swallow. It’s absolutely vital that every elderly person has access to the care and hygiene necessary to maintain healthy mouth tissues and lip posture. Periodontal disease has been linked to stroke, heart disease and other life-threatening conditions.
Serious oral complications, including gum disease and the loss of teeth, have become a significant problem for people over the age of 65. Geriatric dental care involves the delivery of a multidimensional array of dental services. The specialized knowledge and skill of our dentists and staff have equipped us to manage the unique needs of our aging population. Regardless of age or health status, Texas Denture Clinic is prepared to deliver the quality dental services elderly men and women deserve.
The barriers that used to prevent elderly people from receiving dental care and hygiene are a thing of the past. We take great pride in giving every senior citizen a reason to smile.
