Cosmetic Dentistry for Seniors
Are you self-conscious about your smile because of noticeable stains, chips, cracks, gaps, or failing restorations? Dr. Mohr is a certified expert in the field of cosmetic dentistry, meaning that no matter what you want to improve about your smile’s appearance, he can provide it for you. Teeth whitening can quickly get rid of coffee, wine, and tobacco stains, and porcelain veneers can give you a smile fit for the silver screen in just two appointments. Whether you just want a minor touch-up or a complete makeover, with Dr. Mohr, we know you’ll love the final results
Dentures & Partials
Millions of older Americans rely on dentures to help them speak clearly and chew their food, but over time, they can become loose-fitting, uncomfortable, and unreliable. If you’re looking to get a set of teeth you can trust, Dr. Mohr can design a prosthetic ideally suited to your specific needs that is both stable and natural-looking. Partial dentures can replace multiple teeth missing along a single arch, while full dentures can help bring back an entire row all at once.
Dental implants are the gold standard when it comes to replacing missing teeth. They are the only treatment that restores both the root and crown of a tooth, creating something that is the next best thing to nature. Dr. Mohr works with a dream team of oral surgeons and periodontists to place his patients’ implants, and then he can provide custom-made restorations that can bring back any number of teeth for a lifetime.
Dental Crowns & Bridges
Do you have a few teeth that have seen better days or some dental restorations that need to be replaced? Dr. Mohr can personally design custom-made dental crowns and bridges to beautifully and durably repair damaged teeth and even replace missing teeth. These restorations can improve someone’s smile both aesthetically and functionally at the same time, making practically any dental problem disappear.
Dental Checkups & Cleanings for Seniors
Routine preventive care is essential no matter your age because many oral health issues (including oral cancer) present little to no symptoms during their initial stages, only becoming apparent when they are quite advanced. A checkup allows Dr. Mohr to catch and treat any dental decay or damage you might have before it can cause you a major headache down the line. And, with a cleaning from one of our hygienists, they’ll be able to remove plaque and bacteria from between your teeth and around dental restorations that your tools at home simply can’t reach, stopping problems before they even start.
Periodontal (Gum) Disease Treatment for Seniors
Older patients are more susceptible to developing gum disease for a number of reasons, as certain health conditions and medications can lower saliva production in the mouth, making it a more welcoming environment for harmful bacteria. We perform gum screenings at every regular checkup so we can find and treat infection as soon as possible. For patients who already have gum disease, we have a number of dedicated treatments that are proven to eliminate the infection and restore health to the entire smile.
About 90% of Americans will experience a cavity at some point in their life, so in all likelihood, you probably have at least one silver filling in your mouth right now. Thankfully, when it comes to repairing small cavities and slightly damaged teeth, we can now offer a much more aesthetically-friendly option: tooth-colored fillings. They are made of a composite resin material that can be shaded to perfectly match any patient’s enamel color, making the restoration itself look just like natural dental structure. Dr. Mohr can even use these fillings to replace old silver ones that are either worn out or cause a patient to feel self-conscious.
It's Your Time
After all of the attention you have given everyone else over the years, it’s time to get some yourself. You deserve to have a smile you’re always eager to show off and allows you to eat anything you want, and that’s exactly what Dr. Mohr can give you.
