Senior’s Dental Care

Our experienced and knowledgeable team of dentists at East Bentleigh Dental Group understand just how our oral healthcare needs change as we grow older. In addition to our services in general and cosmetic dentistry, we have developed a comprehensive list of dental care services that are tailored to meet the specific needs of our senior patients.

From dental implants and bridges to a full set of dentures, seniors can expect to receive a full range of treatment options to improve their oral health, maintain chewing function and monitor for potential, more serious issues. As with all of our treatments, we have effective options in pain management, such as sleep dentistry and sedation dentistry.

Using Technology to Improve Treatment

Explore the range of services most commonly requested by our senior patients. With state-of-the-art laser dentistry, many of our treatments are now less painful and have the benefit of faster healing.

  • Dentures – Dentures can be an excellent solution for older patients to regain the function and appearance of their smile after tooth loss. They are more comfortable and durable than ever before and can be designed to suit your individual lifestyle.
  • Dental Implants – By forming a permanent foundation for crowns and dentures, dental implants can give you back your ability to eat, speak and smile confidently. Your dentist at EBDG can help you compare your suitability for dentures and dental implants.
  • Periodontal Disease Treatment – With more than 30% of people over the age of 50 experiencing advanced gum disease, reducing the health risks associated with the disease and effectively treating it are essential to protecting the health of our patients.
  • Oral Cancer – Seniors should continue to visit their dentist at EBDG every six months even if they have experienced complete tooth loss. Checking for early signs of oral cancer can mean a greater chance of survival for those affected.
