Dr. Perrott’s Practice performs senior dentistry (sometimes called geriatric dentistry), both for preventive care and to address the special dental health issues of seniors.
With aging comes reduced levels of growth and repair for all normal tissues – part of the processes that lead to human maturation. As such, stresses resulting from impaired nutrition, slips and falls impact dental and periodontal (gum) health more than among younger people.
Further, seniors often take prescription drugs to address health issues and these can have side-effects that lead to degradation of teeth, gums and mouth.
