Using Technology to Improve Treatment

With state-of-the-art laser dentistry, many of our treatments are now less painful and have the benefit of faster healing. We also use the latest technologies that allow us to carefully monitor and track dental health for seniors over time. Whether we’re designing dental implants for seniors or providing general oral health care for seniors, our dentists will make use of the latest innovations to ensure complete patient comfort.

Our Senior Dental Care Services

Below you’ll find some of the senior dental care services we commonly provide for our senior patients:

Routine Check-Ups

Regular dental check-ups remain important as a person ages. At East Bentleigh Dental Group, we recommend check-ups every 6 months to monitor oral health and catch any developing dental issues early.

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 for seniors can restore an individual’s ability to eat, speak and smile confidently. Your dentist at East Bentleigh Dental Group can help you determine your suitability for dental implants and advise you on what type of implant may be best suited to your needs.

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. Our dentists are committed to ensuring optimal oral health for seniors to minimise more serious problems.

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 and ensure better overall oral health for seniors.
