Thank you! Dr Do is the best dentist I’ve ever been to in 52 years! Completely in a league of her own. What a relief to find this office. Excellent staff too!
Geriatric dentistry focuses on the special needs of the elderly and their mouths. Common conditions such as dry mouth, dental decay and gum disease can be treated or even prevented. Prosthetic replacements such as crowns, bridges and dentures for missing teeth are important in order to maintain proper nutrition as well as an attractive smile. When providing dental care for older patients Dr. Do also takes into account other age-related changes such as bone loss, osteoporosis, slower reflexes, sensory function and independent living.
Getting older does not necessarily mean one will lose teeth or suffer from poor oral health. So it is important to take preventative measures to protect your teeth and keeping them as healthy as possible. Palm Harbor dentist, Dr. Do works one-on-one with each patient to develop a treatment and prevention plan to fit their individual needs.
