3 Tips for Senior Dental Care
If you are over the age of 55, it is time to start taking new considerations for your oral health care routine.
Book your appointment at Dr. Cyrus Dentistry to receive personalized advice and follow these tips to keep your teeth and gums healthy as you get older:
- Consider Medication: Talk to your doctor and dentist about how your regular prescription medications may impact your oral health. Many medications can lead to dry mouth as an unpleasant side effect, which can promote the formation and development of bacteria in your mouth. This can increase the odds of tooth decay and create issues with bad breath. Get advice from both your doctor and dentist to find a solution that works for your overall health and lifestyle.
- Tooth Loss Solutions: Many people face tooth decay, root damage, erosion and other dental troubles that lead to tooth loss. If you require an extraction or have already lost teeth, turn to our team to find the right tooth replacement option for you. There is a range of types available, from dentures to permanent implants. A customized solution can be made for a natural-looking and functional smile that is subtle and comfortable.
- Schedule Regular Dental Appointments: When symptoms do not include pain or discomfort, it may seem like nothing is wrong. Unfortunately, many dental health issues can progress quickly, especially as we age, and they are not always obvious without a professional opinion. Don’t skip your regular dental checkups, which can uncover issues before they become expensive and require invasive procedures to correct. Book your oral examination and our trained dental professionals can provide an assessment for your teeth and gums.

From grandparents to grandchildren and everyone in between, our staff takes into account each patient’s teeth and the different concerns at each stage of life.
