Geriatric dentistry focuses on the special needs of older mouths and can help prevent common conditions such as dry mouth and gum disease, as well as provide prosthetic replacements such as crowns, bridges and dentures for missing teeth. Elder people require special treatment for their aging, weakened teeth that are more susceptible to damage and disease. Since many oral conditions are also associated with systemic conditions, the risk for dental problems increases even more with age.
Dr. Rosellini and Dr. Ombrello also take into account all age-related changes such as slower reflexes, sensory function and independent living when providing dental care for older patients. Getting older does not necessarily mean patients will lose teeth or suffer from poor oral health, so it is important to take preventative measures to protecting your teeth and keeping them as healthy as possible. Dr. Rosellini and Dr. Ombrello work one-on-one with each of their patients to develop a customized treatment and prevention plan to fit the individual needs of older patients as their mouth ages.
Dr. Michael Rosellini has been specializing in creating healthy, beautiful, natural smiles since 1980.
