Dental Care for Seniors in London, Ontario
People are keeping their teeth longer and it’s important for seniors to maintain good dental health. With proper dental hygiene and regular visits to the dentist you can enjoy health teeth and gums your whole life!
We specialize in dental care for seniors. Dr. Saari is a specialist in seniors’ dentistry and teaches geriatric dentistry at Western. We provide a full range of services to help seniors maintain good dental health.
Our office is wheelchair accessible and our team can assist patients with mobility issues. We have a special examining room that can accommodate a wheelchair, so you don’t need to leave your chair during your appointment. We also have a remote dental office at Chelsey Park Nursing Home to provide care to residents there.
Your dental health
As you get older, it becomes more important to monitor your dental health. Your gums will naturally recede as you age, which can leave your teeth feeling sensitive. Regular dental exams can help detect and treat problems when they occur, but a daily self exam of your mouth, teeth, and gums is the best way to keep on top of changes in your dental health.
We can assess dentures for fit and condition and make adjustments or repairs where needed. For new denture patients we provide denture fitting services.
We can train and assist caregivers to provide oral hygiene and dental care, such as brushing, flossing, and simple dental exams, to seniors. We also work with families and caregivers, including persons with power of attorney, and insurance providers to make the financial aspect of your care as easy as possible.
