A Beautiful Smile Has No Age Limit!

DID YOU KNOW THAT TOOTH LOSS during your elderly years actually has nothing to do with aging and everything to do with gum disease, a disease that’s also linked to cancer, diabetes, and heart problems?

Fortunately, there is NO REASON why you have to become a victim. It has become even more important to understand your aging smile in the past few decades. And with any age smile, there are Musts, Shoulds, and Coulds:

Some “Musts”

  • As we age, our gums recede, and can expose roots to cavities and decay. Don’t ever postpone your regular professional visits with Dr. White.
  • If you have dental work in your mouth that is several decades old you should have it checked out. Even if it doesn’t seem to be bothering you, it is greatly increasing the risk of decay setting in around the edges of old fillings or crowns. See Dr. White to be sure you aren’t at risk.

Some “Shoulds”

  • Modern dental implants feel, look and function just like natural teeth. If you have missing teeth, advanced restorative implants might be be the solution for you.
  • Boost self confidence. Nearly 90% of dental implant patients who previously had dentures admit that their confidence is up, and that the procedure is well worth repeating.

Some “Coulds”

  • Each year, more “seasoned” citizens are opting to keep their natural teeth AND beautify their smiles through cosmetic veneers. It isn’t a complicated procedure and there’s very little discomfort. Now you can too.

Dr. White and his team want to ensure that all of their patients are well taken care of, no matter their age. If you have an elderly loved one in need of a dental visit, but perhaps has been afraid, or doesn’t see the value please let us know. We would love to help you.

Also, we invite you to be a part of our Facebook Page. It’s one of the best ways to keep track of everything going on in our practice that affects your family’s oral health.

We appreciate having you as our valued patient!
