Senior Care Dentist
Senior Care Dentist in San Jose, CA
Everyone has specific needs, especially when it comes to their health. So, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that your oral health also requires specific treatment and care during different phases of your life. As we get older, our health changes and, as a result, some of our needs change too.
This is why it’s important for seniors to have a dentist who can provide them with the comprehensive and tailored dentistry they need to prevent certain health issues that are more commonly seen as we age. Here at Sikka Dental, we strive to provide our mature patients with thorough and compassionate dental treatments and preventive care every time they walk through our doors.
Trusting in your dentist is paramount to receiving the treatment you deserve when it comes to your oral health. You want a dentist who listens to your needs and concerns and addresses them. Furthermore, you want a dentist that has received specialized training to be able to provide you with the quality and individualized care your aging smile needs to stay healthy. Seniors are more likely to face certain oral health issues and it’s important that they have a dentist like ours who can address and prevent these issues whenever possible while also providing you with tips and advice for good oral hygiene specifically tailored for seniors.
Tooth loss is one of the most common issues that seniors face. Millions of American adults will deal with tooth loss and the statistics are even higher when it comes to seniors. Here at Sikka Dental, we strive to provide you with routine checkups and cleanings to prevent tooth loss from happening. We also provide you with the education and tools to be able to determine for yourself if the symptoms you are experiencing warrant an immediate trip to our office. The sooner a problem is detected the less likely there will be for long-term consequences.
Even with the proper measures and hygiene in place, issues can still happen that may lead an elderly individual to face tooth loss. When this happens it’s important that you have a dentist by your side to provide you with the different treatment options that are right for your current health and budget so that you can get a full smile back.
Seniors are also prone to gum disease. Gum disease doesn’t often produce symptoms in the very beginning, which is why it’s important that you are coming in twice a year for routine checkups. If you are at a higher risk for cavities or gum disease, we may even discuss having you come in more regularly for checkups and cleanings. Dry mouth, gum tissue irritation and even oral thrush (a fungal infection) are all issues that seniors are more likely to face, and our dental team knows exactly what to do to get your oral health back on track.
