Dental care for Seniors
Each age group tends to be associated with a different set of problems. Seniors are usually at an increased risk of dental care due to a combination of different reasons.
- Multiple medications reducing protective salivary flow
- Reduced dexterity and ability to remove plaque
- Increased intake of dietary carbohydrates
- Cumulative amount of restorations and periodontal defects.
Natural dentition is preferable to dentures and within reason, we try our best to preserve your current teeth and a healthy natural smile.
To help out with the potential financial pressures of dental treatment, Dental Centre Buderim offers a 10% seniors discount on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
