We Help Aging Smiles Stay Strong
As you age, you will notice more than just new aches, pains, and a few gray hairs. You will also see changes to your smile. Over the years, your oral health needs are going to change. To accommodate those changes, you need a dentist by your side who specializes in geriatric care. Dr. Lillian Obucina provides senior dentistry in Chicago Loop. At Lakefront Dental, our office is equipped to handle all your needs through your Golden Years.
Complete Senior Dentistry
As a senior, you have unique needs that were not a concern during your younger years. Now, your teeth are showing the signs of wear and tear, like enamel erosion and weakness. You may have even lost a few teeth. These issues can make it difficult to eat a well-balanced diet, which can lead to nutritional deficiencies.
In addition to complications with your teeth, you also have a heightened risk of gum disease. It is estimated 17% of seniors over the age of 65 have a form on the infection. Not only can this impact your oral health, but your general health as well. If it is not treated, it can increase your risk of heart disease, diabetes, respiratory infections, and Alzheimer’s disease.
There are several factors that influence the state of your current dental health, such as poor oral hygiene in the past, medical conditions, and the use of certain medications. A general dentist in Chicago Loop may not be enough to understand the various issues that impact your smile. To ensure nothing is overlooked, you need a dentist who specializes in these concerns, like Dr. Obucina.
As a geriatric dentist in Chicago Loop, she believes that your smile doesn’t have to age. Instead, you can turn back the hands of time with comprehensive care that caters to your exact needs.
