Premium yet Affordable Dental Care for Seniors
As a family dentist, we are committed to serving every member of your family with the highest quality dental care available. Our goal is to provide accessible dental care for every demographic within Huntington Beach and surrounding areas. Our senior citizens are highly valued members of our community, and we are proud to service them with the full range of dental procedures and treatments using the latest technologies and state-of-the-art
At our dental clinic, we believe in preventive dentistry as the highest priority. While we have a myriad of available dental procedures from the simple to the highly complex and technical, we would rather see our patients avoid treatment procedures by taking good care of their oral health. This is equally the case for all of our patients from the youngest children to our most mature patients.
We highly recommend our senior patients visit us for a thorough teeth cleaning and check-up at least every 6 months to prevent oral health problems as much as possible and catch any issues early to minimize the risk of further deterioration. At our preventive dentistry appointments, we also clean and check up on any prior restorative or prosthodontic treatments that you may already have to maximize their chances of longevity and rectify any issues before they become serious.
For senior patients with underlying dental health issues, we may recommend that you visit more regularly to ensure we catch any progression of these issues as quickly as possible.
Restorative Dental Care
Even with the highest level of preventive dental care at home and at the dental clinic, unforeseen dental health issues may still arise. Whether due to genetics, outside oral trauma, wear and tear over the years, or simply from neglect, dental damage and deterioration still can and often do occur. Remember that it is always best to receive diagnosis and treatment as soon as possible!
Our dental clinic provides the full gamut of restorative dental procedures that include dental fillings, tooth extractions, root canal procedures, gum disease, and periodontal treatments such as scaling and root planing or periodontal surgery, as well as the full range of cosmetic dentistry procedures and dental prosthodontics. With highly trained dentists and technicians including dental specialists for specialty procedures, the latest methods, and technologies, the use of state-of-the-art equipment, as well as our standards of excellence and quality of service, you can rest assured that you will receive the highest quality care and treatment available to restore your dental health!
While we aim to catch dental issues early and provide the least invasive restorative treatments, sometimes we are unable to save a tooth and must consider dental prosthodontics. This is, unfortunately, most prevalent for our senior patients, whose teeth have experienced the most “life” and have likely deteriorated over the years. Luckily, there is a variety to choose from to suit your lifestyle!
The primary dental prosthodontics to replace one or more lost teeth include full or partial dentures, dental bridges, and dental implants. Our dental clinic can guide you through a consultation process to help you choose the most suitable prosthodontic treatment for your needs. For patients who have experienced significant damage to one or more teeth where it can be saved but has cosmetic defects, we also offer cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers, dental bonding, and dental crowns.
Our dental clinic is a family dentist that provides a full range of dental services and specialties so that every member of your family can receive quality dental care under one roof! With an onsite oral surgeon and our primary dentist specializing in pediatric dentistry, you can rest assured that the youngest member of your family to the most mature will be well taken care of at our clinic! We also receive a wide range of dental insurance plans with staff who are highly trained in their understanding of these plans, which means we can service a broader demographic of patients while keeping your out-of-pocket costs to a minimum!
Medicare Dental coverage through Medicare Part B covers the cost of many serious dental conditions for patients over the age of 65, as well as for those with a permanent disability. If you have a dental issue that significantly affects your quality of life, there is a good chance that your treatment may be covered! Procedures frequently covered under Medicare dental include dental implants and other oral surgery or oral reconstruction procedures that may be required to correct conditions caused by disease, trauma, or injury.
For patients who qualify for Denti Cal (the dental coverage portion of MediCal, which is California’s version of the Medicaid program), significantly more dental procedures may be covered. Covered procedures may include preventive dentistry such as teeth cleaning and diagnostics, emergency dental, cavity care such as dental fillings and root canal procedures, periodontal treatment and prevention, prosthodontics, and orthodontics.
We are one of the very few dental clinics in the Southern California area that accepts both Medicare dental and Denti Cal plans. Book a consultation with us today to see if your treatment can be covered by these or any other dental coverage you may have!
