Weninger Dentistry understands that seniors have special dental and oral healthcare needs. That is why we are committed to making sure that Tampa Bay seniors have access to a wide range of affordable, high-quality dental care services.
It is vitally important that older patients get regular dental check-ups. Knowing that many seniors do not have dental insurance, and that dental treatment is not covered by Medicare, we offer a discounted dental plan for seniors.
The dental professionals at Weninger Dentistry are experienced in the care of senior patients, and looks out for dental and oral health issues that are common in aging adults:
- Periodontal Disease or Receding Gums: A common cause of tooth loss in adults, if caught early, it can be halted – meaning at its current state so as to avoid it from getting worse.
- Dry Mouth: Seniors tend to take prescription medications, many of which can decrease saliva flow. Chronic dry mouth can result from this condition, leading to dental decay, denture sores, and other issues.
- Loose or Missing Teeth: Tooth loss can be a common part of aging. We will make sure you understand all of your options, including tooth restoration, bridges, dentures, and implants.
- Oral Cancer: As with other forms of cancer, the incidence of oral cancer increases in older adults. Early detection is important to successful treatment.
As our patient, your concerns are very important to us. We take the time to answer all of your questions and discuss your treatment options in detail.
