Paying attention to your dental hygiene and oral health — especially your gums — may pay you back with more than a gleaming, healthy smile and manageable dental bills. It may keep your heart healthy too.
Age in and of itself is not a dominant or sole factor in determining oral health. However, certain medical conditions, such as arthritis in the hands and fingers, may make brushing or flossing teeth difficult to impossible to perform. Drugs can also affect oral health and may make a change in your dental treatment necessary. Darkened teeth, dry mouth, root decay, gum disease, ill fitting dentures and tooth loss are some of the major issues we diagnose and treat on behalf of our senior patients.
At Fifth St Dental in Etobicoke, our trusted team of dental professionals specialize in the particular needs of our senior patients. With everything from periodontal management to denture care to basic restorative needs, our professional staff are extremely well educated in the on going needs and requirements of our vibrant seniors of today.
