GERIATRIC DENTISTRY, DEFINED
Every year people are statistically living longer and longer.
Dental care geared around the oral care of older patients is the general subject of geriatric dentistry. As we age, our teeth and mouths change, requiring specific management and diagnosis, prevention and treatment. At Vaheed Bayette DDS, we are your trust geriatric dentist in Mission Valley, having years of experience under our belt dealing with older patients.
WHAT WE DO
Older patients react differently to dental procedures, and we take a very delicate and measured nature in our dental procedures.
We also know how to handle and work with patients who have increased sensitivity to medications used in dentistry. Also being highly adept in this field, we are able to work closely with our patients and caregivers to work in tandem with any other treatments our patients are going through. We also understand different gum and root issues that can arise just by a matter of age. We’ve got the best procedures to address these issues, whether we need to do gum treatment, dental implants, dentures or other restorative procedures.
