With advancing age, general dental health can be challenged by different influences.These can include:

  • risk of dental caries(decay) increasing
  • complex medication regimes contributing to ‘dry mouth’ and other oral discomfort
  • teeth becoming worn and fragile
  • medical conditions affecting teeth and gums
  • monitoring if dentures are fitting comfortably
  • monitoring gum health when wearing dentures

 

Regular checkups are recommended for early detection and treatment of dental and  oral conditions.
