Dentistry For Seniors in Stuart, FL

Stay Youthful With a Stunning Smile 

Inevitably, your teeth will start to wear down and lose some of their natural shine as they get older. This is part of the natural aging process even if you brush and floss every day. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t maintain a healthy and beautiful smile during your senior years. In fact, thanks to advancements in dental technology and restorations, it’s never been easier. 

Explore our guide to learn more about our treatment options for seniors and how we can help you smile with confidence.

Gentle Procedures

Dr. Burke and our team will always prioritize the health and safety of each patient at our practice. We understand that older patients often have especially sensitive teeth and gums. That’s why we use the latest technology and conscious sedation options to ensure a pain-free dental experience.

Our Technology 

At Fresh Family Dental located in Stuart, FL, we utilize cutting-edge technology to ensure maximum comfort and stunning results. Some of our technology includes:

 

  1. 3D Cone Beam Scanner – provides high-quality 3D images of your mouth and jaw without the need for messy and uncomfortable impressions 
  2. Digital Smile Design — allows you to see what your new smile will look like before the treatment begins
  3. Soft Tissue Laser — removes infected gum tissue without a scalpel or stitches, while preserving more of your healthy tissue
  4. Computer-Guided Surgery — helps us plan advanced surgical procedures like dental implant placement with unmatched precision
  5. Low Radiation Handheld X-rays — allow us to detect issues that aren’t visible to the naked eye with reduced radiation exposure

Sedation Dentistry

If you suffer from dental anxiety or have sensitive teeth, we’re happy to offer conscious sedation (anxiolysis). This means you’ll be able to relax and remain calm throughout treatment while still remaining awake and responsive. Depending on your needs, you can choose between the following sedation options at our Stuart, FL practice: 

  1. Nitrous Oxide — Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is administered through a small nasal mask and takes effect within seconds. The sedation effects can be reversed just as quickly, though you’ll likely have little to no memory of your procedure after it’s finished. 
  2. Oral Sedation (anxiolysis) — Oral sedation involves taking a small pill roughly an hour before your appointment. By the time your treatment starts, the medication will have kicked in and you’ll feel relaxed. Since this method involves taking a pill before your procedure and the effects can linger afterward, you’ll need to arrange for someone to drive you.

Dental Care For Seniors 

Your senior years are all about spending time with family and enjoying the quality of life you’ve worked so hard to earn. Don’t let missing teeth or other dental issues impact you during this crucial period of your life. Instead, come see us at Fresh Family Dental and ask about our dentistry for seniors. 

Some of our treatments include:

Dental Implants 

Tooth loss is a common issue among senior patients. While there are several tooth replacements available, dental implants are the only permanent solution. These natural-looking restorations are secured to your jaw for unmatched strength and stability. Best of all, they stimulate healthy jawbone growth to help you maintain a youthful, attractive appearance.

Full & Partial Dentures 

Dentures are a fast, minimally-invasive, and affordable replacement for missing teeth. They can be customized to restore any number of teeth for a natural appearance and maximum convenience. With the help of dentures, you can eat, speak, and smile with confidence. 

Teeth Whitening 

As mentioned above, your teeth tend to appear darker over time. If you want to revitalize your smile, we offer in-office and take-home teeth whitening options for your convenience. Our in-office whitening procedure can brighten even the darkest teeth using the KOR system. Ask us if teeth whitening is right for you!
