Treating Elderly Patients | Dentist in Vienna VA

Are you seeking family dentistry in Vienna, VA and want a dentist who can take care of patients of all ages? Our office welcomes patients from your toddler to your most senior family members and provides effective dental care at every life stage.

Senior and elderly patients do require some special dental care. As we age, conditions such as dry mouth and periodontal disease can actually pose a greater risk. Also, many of our older patients lose dexterity as they suffer from conditions such as arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, and reduced strength.

Depending on your needs, we may recommend fluoride treatments, more frequent dental cleanings, or even dental sealants to protect from decay and periodontal disease. Oral health can change throughout life and having a dentist who adjusts to your needs is essential.

We offer regular comprehensive oral exams – We examine your teeth, gums, bite, tissue, and offer a life-saving oral cancer screening.

Professional customized dental cleanings – Dental cleanings are essential for all patients. Brushing and flossing is not enough to remove tartar between teeth and beneath gumlines. We provide dental cleanings based on your needs – even periodontal maintenance.

Because our teeth do a tough job, they can sustain damage over the years. We offer high-quality restorations to protect your natural teeth and your smile. This is important to our senior patients who are more socially active than ever.

If you face tooth loss, we offer tooth-replacement options for every lifestyle including bridges, dentures, and dental implants.

As you age, keeping your smile healthy is important to maintaining a healthy and well-balanced diet of fresh fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, dairy, and whole grains. For family dentistry in Vienna, VA, just give us a call to schedule your next appointment. We welcome you and look forward to helping you eat the foods you love and smile confidently.
