As a Portland geriatric dentistry expert, Dr. Cardwell Provides the Caring and Compassionate Treatments You Deserve.
As we age, our teeth require consistent preventative care to reduce the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and permanent tooth loss. Seniors have a much higher risk for these types of common oral health problems and can have a harder time treating these types of issues if allowed to progress. Seniors also experience other types of oral health-related issues more frequently when compared to younger patients.
To keep your smile looking and feeling its best, you need the care of a senior dentist in Milwaukie that understands the specialized needs of seniors. Dr. Cardwell has a long and established record for helping seniors maintain and improve their oral health so they can continue to enjoy eating, drinking, laughing, and smiling. Dr. Cardwell specializes in the treatment of a variety of common senior oral health issues, including:
Nearly 1 out of 5 adults 65 and older have lost all of their permanent teeth.
Your teeth play a pivotal role in helping to maintain your overall health. Without teeth, seniors have trouble maintaining the type of balanced diet they require to stay healthy. Malnutrition ranks as a fairly common issue for seniors missing most or all of their teeth.
To restore the form and function back to a senior's smile, Dr. Cardwell offers full and partial dentures at incredibly affordable rates. Dr. Cardwell will work with you to create a customized treatment plan that addresses the needs of today while still considering what tomorrow may bring.
Over the years, tooth enamel can become thinner and gum tissue can start to pull away from the base of your teeth.
When this occurs, the delicate roots and nerves of your teeth become exposed and more susceptible to stimuli. Eating or drinking hot or cold items can stimulate the nerves of your teeth and cause sharp pangs of discomfort.
Dr. Cardwell understands the causes of tooth sensitivity and knows how to successfully treat patients so that any discomfort subsides and they can continue to eat and drink without any further problems.
A variety of commonly prescribed medications can cause dry mouth as a side effect.
Saliva actually plays a very important role in preventing tooth decay by working to wash harmful oral bacteria and food particles that linger in the mouth after eating away from the surface of your teeth and gums. When the mouth produces too little saliva, patients have a higher risk of developing tooth decay and gum disease.
Dealing with dry mouth first requires diagnosing what's causing the issue. As an experienced senior dentist, Dr. Cardwell can help patients identify what's causing their dry mouth and work to find an acceptable solution.
