Dentistry services for seniors in Flower Mound

These days, the number of seniors still seeing the dentist regularly and keeping their natural teeth longer is on the rise. In the past, seniors tended to live with missing teeth after losing them to decay, disease, or extraction. With current technology and modern procedures, seniors can maintain their dental health easier than ever. At Jonathon J. Golab, D.D.S., we believe in the strong link between oral health and overall wellbeing and provide a wide range of dentistry services for seniors in our Flower Mound office.

Seniors are more prone to tooth decay and cavities for a variety of reasons.
  • Geriatric teeth have a decreased ability to handle normal wear and tear.
  • Arthritis – difficulty with movement and use of the hands can leave people unable to properly brush and floss their teeth, leading to an increase in plaque and tartar buildup.
  • Lack of fluoride – water fluoridation wasn't around when many of today's seniors were growing up. Fluoride is essential in strengthening the teeth and preventing decay.
  • Dry Mouth – a common side effect associated with medications and health problems. Saliva is necessary to clean food particles and acid from the mouth. Dry mouth leads to a decrease in saliva leaving teeth more susceptible to decay.
  • Poor nutrition – a diet high in sugars can lead to increased cavities.
Seniors are also at a high risk for gum disease. Factors such as long-term dental neglect, recessed gums, tobacco use, and dry mouth can increase risk even further. Gum disease has also been associated with other conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and osteoporosis, so it is imperative that every patient be aware of how to prevent it from occurring. Professional dental cleanings are an essential part of removing plaque buildup and keeping gums healthy.

Dr. Golab is experienced in evaluating senior patients for the most common dental issues such as gum disease, decay, and oral cancer. The doctor offers a variety of dentistry services to treat any potential problems.

Proper daily oral hygiene and a balanced diet can help seniors keep their natural teeth healthy for a lifetime. Regular dental visits are essential to make sure that any possible issues are caught early. To learn more about dentistry services offered in his Flower Mound office, Call Dr. Golab today.
