Care for Seniors!

Senior Dental Care Conyers GASenior Dental Care is Different
Right along with our bodies, our teeth and gums change as we get older. Plaque builds up over years, as well as darkening due to coffee, tea, or tobacco consumption. Ask us about procedures that can combat these problems. A common side effect of many medications is reduced flow of saliva. There are simple products that can help this condition. Your fillings are getting older, too, which can mean weakness or cracks. Regular check-ups will allow us to stay on top of your existing fillings. Gum disease and root decay are often big problems for seniors. Daily cleaning and good nutrition are critical for healthy gums. If your gums become red or begin to bleed or your teeth start to feel loose, contact us immediately.

Gum Disease & Your Health

Gum Disease Treatment Conyers GAWhy Lost Teeth Happen
Many people assume that tooth loss is usually because of decay. It’s not. The primary cause is gum disease, which can be completely unnoticeable right up until you lose your teeth. An early symptom is bleeding gums when you brush or floss. Of more concern is loose or shifting teeth. If you’ve been advised that you need gum surgery, you may be glad to hear it’s possible to control gum disease with a variety of non-surgical methods.

Gum Disease Can Contribute to Stroke and Heart Disease
Medical research has led many to reach a startling conclusion: gum disease, stroke, and heart disease are linked. With heart disease often being fatal, it is clear that gum disease is a more serious matter than many people think. The American Dental Association estimates that 8 out of 10 Americans have periodontal (gum) disease. Any other affliction would be considered an epidemic! Most dentists think it is just that. They knew that label wouldn’t be applied to gum disease because “no one ever dies from it.” The worst is that you lose your teeth. Problematic, but certainly not life threatening. But that’s all changed.

The American Academy of Periodontology reports that “Studies found periodontal infection may contribute to the development of heart disease, increase the risk of premature, underweight births, and pose a serious threat to people whose health is already compromised due to diabetes and respiratory diseases.” Periodontal disease is characterized by bacterial infection of the gums. These bacteria can travel into the bloodstream – straight to the heart.

General Dentistry

General Dentistry Conyers GAThe Importance of Hygiene Visits
Most people realize the list of important reasons to visit the dentist starts with having your teeth cleaned by a professional hygienist. They can deal with the plaque and tartar that form on teeth over time. Though regular brushing usually removes most of the soft and sticky plaque, any remaining hardens into tartar, which is beyond the scope of your typical toothbrush and floss. Tartar can accumulate below the gumline as well as on the tooth surface. If you don’t remove these, you risk more serious problems with your teeth and gums later on. Recent research shows a definite link between untreated gum disease and other serious conditions like heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Having your teeth cleaned regularly is one of the best things you can do to stay healthy!

Implant Dentistry

Implant Dentistry Conyers GAWhy Not ‘Grow’ New Ones?
The ideal way to replace lost teeth is with dental implants. In the front of the mouth, they are most visible. In the back, they provide stability so you can chew all the foods you love. In short, implants can help you recapture the healthy, beautiful smile you used to have. Bridges and removable dentures sit on top of the gums, but dental implants are placed under the gums. The “tooth” placed on the implant is very life-like because it comes through the gums just like the original did – it’s like growing a new tooth! Any number of lost teeth can be replaced by dental implants. Even people who have lost all their teeth can benefit from implants! They can replace their dentures with teeth that don’t slip when they talk and don’t need to be taken out at night. We use multiple stabilizing and virtual surgery technology advances that make implant placement even more accurate and precise than ever.
