Seniors Dentist in Maroubra – Tips and Suggestions

Geriatic Dentistry (Dentistry for Seniors) is an important part of our daily routine at Gentle and caring dentistry. Seniors (Patients aged more than 65 years) form more than 20% of the Australian population and generally a higher percentile of our patients.

With an improvement in health education and increase in personal care, we see an overall improvement in dental health and teeth retention amongst senior patients. Studies show that approximately 50% of people 55 years or older have at least 23 of theSeniorsdentistMaroubrair 32 natural teeth remaining.

Certain dental conditions are more common to seniors than young adults. Such conditions can have adverse effect on their dental health and overall physical well being as well.

Seniors are more likely to suffer from a host of oral health issues that may result from the natural aging process, the inability to receive proper oral care due to financial constraints, and/or the inability to provide dental hygiene care to themselves.

Our recommendation as a Seniors dentist in Maroubra is to reach for a dentist if you see any of the following conditions:

– Dry Mouth (Xerostomia)
– Tooth Wear and Excessive Staining
– Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)
– Loss or Alteration in Taste
– Denture Care
– Dental Decay (Root Surface)
– Issues with Missing teeth

Great overall experience. My daughter had three visits to address her deep fissures. They always run on time, are friendly, and explain how the process will run and what should be expected. I highly recommend this dental practice, Dr Irani never disappoints.

Before I found Dr Irani I actively avoided going to the dentist. That's now a thing of the past thanks to her great skill and gentleness. I highly recommend her.
