Seniors and Oral Health: What You Should Know

November 10, 2011

Caring for your teeth and gums will always be an essential part of life. But aging can make it difficult to give your smile the kind of attention it needs to stay strong. For some patients, arthritis pain can make it difficult to brush and floss. For others, dry mouth can increase the risk of both gum disease and tooth decay.

Neither of these has to keep you from having a healthy smile, though. Thanks Dr. Giamberardino’s gentle touch and years of experience, he can help patients from Medford, Winchester, Somerville, Malden, Everett, and surrounding areas stay on top of their oral health.

Gentle, Compassionate Care

If painful arthritis makes it hard for you to brush or floss, regular visits to our Medford dental practice are vital. In addition to cleaning your teeth, we can recommend a variety of tools that can make daily brushing and flossing easier. We can even talk to you about the benefits of electric toothbrushes, and how they can make any time you spend at the bathroom sink that much more beneficial for your smile.

Patients with arthritis aren’t the only ones who can benefit from regular visits, though. If you suffer from dry mouth, Dr. Giamberardino would be happy to talk with you about what’s causing it. We can also offer some solutions, like staying hydrated with tap water and chewing sugar-free gums or mints, that can offer relief.

Our Medford office can even help patients interested in implant-retained dentures, which can improve a smile’s functionality for the long term.
