The wisest members of our South Burlington community have very particular dental needs that must be kept in mind to ensure they have a smile that is healthy, beautiful, and functional for many years to come. Older adults often have difficulty brushing and flossing their teeth due to mobility issues, or sometimes it can be hard for them to chew due to old, worn-out dental work.
At Green Mountain Dental, we’re not only aware of these unique challenges, but we’re able to address them head on. Dr. Brown and Dr. Aten have extensive experience helping smiles of all ages, which makes them a very valuable resource for local seniors. With their help, they’ll ensure an older patient is able to take care of their teeth at home, their dental work is up to date, and that their care is always affordable.
Regular checkups and cleanings are even more important as we age because conditions like gum disease (which seniors are prone to develop) can lead to more systemic problems such as heart disease, diabetes, and dementia.
