Drs. Navid and Faranak Rahimpour treat dental patients of all ages at Southern Cross Dental! Located in Colorado Springs, CO, we provide top-tier care for our senior patients. Your dental health grows increasingly important as you age. Older patients are at a higher risk of periodontal (gum) disease, extraction, and tooth decay. Proper dental care and appointments are a necessity. Contact our office today to schedule your appointment.
Certain physical tasks become harder when you’re older. This includes smaller things like brushing your teeth. Your Colorado Springs, CO, dentists recommend electric toothbrushes. These provide you with a thorough and physically less demanding cleaning. It’s a great investment for senior citizens.
Do you struggle to reach the farther areas of your mouth? Don’t let your back molars suffer! Try elongating the handle of the toothbrush. This is accomplished with materials around your home. Wrap it in foam, rubber, or even use tongue depressors. A longer toothbrush makes brushing easy.
If you live or take care of an elderly individual, help them with their dental health. Remind them to brush twice a day along with flossing. Assist them with physical tasks that they can’t perform. If they can’t drive, offer to take them to their bi-annual dental checkups. Many times older patients need more frequent appointments. We also know that dental care is expensive. That’s why many communities provide dental care through social services or the public health office.
A healthy mouth equals a happy life! At Southern Cross Dental, we provide you with the best care in the Colorado Springs, CO, area. To schedule an appointment with Drs. Faranak and Navid Rahimpour, visit our website or call 719-471-1717.
