At Avon Smiles we understand that seniors have unique dental needs. Please feel free to contact us to set up an appointment or even just to discuss your special needs as a senior patient.
Good dental care is essential but often neglected because seniors do not have dental insurance and must pay out-of-pocket for all dental services. However oral heath problems can affect overall health. Poor nutrition sometimes stems from trouble chewing, difficulty swallowing due to too little saliva, or ill-fitting dentures that work poorly or hurt. Gingivitis (gum inflammation) and periodontitis (advanced gum disease) may have broader health implications. Increasing evidence links gum disease to heart disease and diabetes.
