How are Americans doing when it comes to the dental health of the 65+ population? Sad to say, it isn’t all good news. Twenty-five percent of those over the age of sixty-five have lost all of their teeth, and are candidates for dentures. Five Star Dental Care in Valrico can help.
What essential factors will improve the oral health of age 65+ Americans? The National Institutes of Health cite three needed components:
- Improved oral health education for the elderly
- Seniors practicing effective daily oral hygiene
- Increased access to dental care1
At Five Star Dental Care – Jeff Bynum, DDS in Valrico, we are dedicated to providing our elderly patients with comprehensive oral health education and attentive care that addresses the special challenges that impact seniors. These challenges include difficulty brushing and flossing due to arthritis, dry mouth caused by prescription medications, tooth sensitivity, bone recession, and complications due to diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
We want our elderly patients to not only have a healthy smile, but a beautiful one as well. Many of our senior patients have elected to improve their smiles with procedures such as crowns, inlays/onlays, dental bonding, porcelain veneers, dental implants, and tooth whitening. The majority of our smile transformation patients are thrilled with their new smile and report that it has improved their life immensely. They feel happier, more attractive, and more confident in social settings.
The knowledgeable team at Five Star Dental Care – Jeff Bynum, DDS on Valrico provides the full spectrum of cosmetic dental care for Valrico, Brandon, and Riverview FL patients of all ages, including dentures, porcelain veneers and dental implants.
