As you age, your oral health may change as well, and you may need to adjust your oral hygiene habits. SeaSide Dentistry offers senior dentistry in Cedar Point, North Carolina, to help you receive the care you need to enjoy a comfortable, active lifestyle and age gracefully. Please call us at 252-764-2784 for more information about senior dentistry, and to schedule your consultation with Dr. Donna Gentry.
When you visit our office for your regular dental appointments, our dentist will perform a full exam of your mouth, carefully checking fillings and looking for fractures or chips. Your teeth and gums age along with the rest of your body, and the day-to-day wear and tear that gradually accumulates puts your teeth at greater risk. We will also check the fit of any appliances you are using to ensure that they fit and function properly.
Common dental problems experienced by seniors include:
- Gum disease
- Root decay
- Dry mouth
- Damaged or missing teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Systemic conditions affecting your oral health (such as diabetes and age-related illnesses)
We encourage you to keep all your regular dental appointments for preventive care, to brush and floss daily, and to maintain a healthy, nutritious diet. If you have questions about senior dentistry, please feel free to contact our office to speak with a member of our team and make your appointment with our dentist.
