Geriatric Dentistry in Nashville, TN
Permanent teeth are meant to last a lifetime and as more people gain an understanding of the importance of oral hygiene, adults are keeping their natural teeth for much longer. Healthy teeth are essential to your overall health and well-being. They enable you to eat a nutritional diet filled with a variety of food, speak clearly, interact with people confidently, and smile happily.
Many older people still have their own teeth, but like the body, the teeth can experience a series of changes as you age. Your oral health is just as important as your physical health. In fact, dental complications can lead to issues such as heart disease or cancer and increase the risk of infection.
Receiving professional dental care should never stop and as you age, routine dental check-ups and cleanings become even more important. During a routine check-up, your dentist will check for any signs that could put your health at risk, and having your teeth cleaned every six months will help preserve your natural teeth and prevent gum disease.
If you have missing teeth and would like to learn more about dental implants, dentures, or dental bridges, our staff members will be happy to answer your questions. Perhaps you have a few teeth that are worn down or chipped, in which case dental bonding can restore your bite and smile. We offer a wide range of dental services to people of all ages and from all walks of life, including geriatric dentistry.
We understand that getting older can make it more difficult to get around, and we also recognize that sitting for extended periods of time can become more challenging with age. That is why we do our very best to make your visit as relaxing and comfortable as possible. We also have the latest technology, which helps us provide you with the dental care you need and deserve while enabling us to work efficiently to get you in and out of the office as quickly as possible.
Our goal is to help you take care of your dental needs, regardless of age, special needs, or physical conditions. If dental visits cause you to become nervous or anxious, we also offer various sedation methods that will help take the edge off, while we complete the dental procedure you need.
