Seniors have similar and different needs than children and adults. One of the big needs is being able to properly chew food without discomfort, infection and inflamation. Chewing food is a very important first step in digestion which is essential to everyone but especially seniors. Also important is the health of mouth. Infection and or Inflammation can contribute to other health issues that no one needs but especially if one has other health issues.
Seniors can some times have concerns with the cost of dental care. It has been my experience that regular exams, x-rays and cleanings along with a long term plan can maintain dental health with the least expense.
