Seniors Dental Care

“A STITCH IN TIME SAVES NINE”

Teeth & Aging: Seniors Dental Care in Moss Vale 

When we think of things that give away our age, we usually picture fine lines and wrinkles. Sure, our skin and grey hair might age us – but our teeth can too. 

‘Getting a little long in the tooth’, thankfully, doesn’t mean your teeth are growing with age; but they do change in appearance and can add years to our appearance if you’re not careful. 

Keep your teeth white 

White, shiny teeth are usually associated with youth and vitality. As we age, the outer layer of the tooth enamel becomes thinner. As enamel is translucent, it exposes the inner dentin underneath as it thins. Dentin is yellowish in colour and this is why our teeth appear yellow.  

Going to the dentist to maintain good dental and oral hygiene will keep your smile lustrous, white and young. Having a professional teeth whitening session takes about an hour and will have you smiling brighter than you have in years. 

Tooth replacements/Missing Teeth 

Missing or broken teeth can age our appearance quickly. If your teeth are damaged or a little bit uneven, your dentist can correct your smile using porcelain veneers. These ultra-thin shells are bonded to your teeth to correct shape, size and colour.  

Our Moss Vale dentists may also offer a dental bridge as an option for your missing teeth. Below is a patient who had a missing tooth. We offered a dental bridge to her and now she is smiling every day. 

You’ll never have to worry about hiding your smile when you have a full set of pearly whites! If you are self-conscious because you have missing teeth or you are wearing dentures that are uncomfortable please call our friendly dental team in Moss Vale to make an appointment for yourself or a loved one on 02 4869 3111.

Dental Implants 

A dental implant is an artificial titanium tooth root, placed under your gum tissue so it joins to the bone of your jaw (just like your own teeth do). This titanium root serves as a foundation for a new tooth (or even several teeth). Through a process called osseointegration, the titanium implant fuses painlessly with your own bone and provides a sturdy support for your new ceramic tooth.  

If you have questions about dental implants or dental implant maintenance, contact our friendly dental team. Dental implants can also be used to stabilise a denture, or even provide an alternative to a removable denture. 

Preventing dental problems as you age 

The team at Dr Patrick Meaney & Associates have a focus on detecting and preventing problems before they have a chance to ruin your day, your sleep or other important events in your life. 

In addition to our seniors dental care we also offer dental health screening for:  

  • Overseas travel 
  • If you are having surgery 
  • Before starting cancer treatment, chemotherapy or radiotherapy 
  • Before beginning treatment for osteoporosis  
  • Some medications (for example Prolia/denosumab, or bisphosphonates) that require a thorough dental examination and assessment before you start taking them. 

Smile with Confidence: The Benefits of Dentures That Fit 

Are you tired of hiding your smile because of ill-fitting dentures? Say goodbye to discomfort and hello to confidence with dentures that fit perfectly. At Dr Patrick Meaney dental office, we understand the importance of a comfortable smile, which is why we're passionate about providing custom-fitted dentures tailored to your unique needs.  

How we do this:  

I have worked with a lot of dental technicians over the years but Oliver Tilch, who trained as a Master Dental Technician at the Trade Academy, Freiburg, Germany is by far the best.

Oliver and I worked together to make sure you have the best possible experience.

Let's explore the incredible benefits of dentures that fit like a glove: 

Enhanced Comfort: Ill-fitting dentures can cause sore spots, irritation, and even difficulty speaking or eating. With dentures that fit properly, you'll experience enhanced comfort throughout your day. Say goodbye to awkward adjustments and hello to seamless wear. 

Improved Speech: One of the most significant challenges of poorly fitting dentures is their impact on speech. Loose dentures can slip or click, making it difficult to pronounce certain words. With custom-fitted dentures, you can speak confidently without worrying about embarrassing slips or mumbling. 

Natural Appearance: A well-fitting denture not only feels better but also looks more natural. Our custom-fitted dentures are designed to complement your facial structure, ensuring a seamless blend with your natural features. You will have a beautiful, confident smile you’ll happy to share. 

Optimized Chewing Ability: Enjoy your favourite foods without hesitation with dentures that fit securely. Properly fitted dentures provide better stability, allowing you to chew with ease and confidence. Say goodbye to food restrictions and hello to a varied, enjoyable diet. 

Preserved Oral Health: Ill-fitting dentures can lead to oral health issues such as gum irritation and bone loss. By investing in dentures that fit perfectly, you're not just improving your comfort and appearance – you're also safeguarding your oral health for the long term. 

Increased Confidence: Perhaps the most significant benefit of dentures that fit is the boost in confidence they provide. When your smile feels comfortable and looks natural, you'll feel more confident in social situations, professional settings, and everyday interactions. Embrace life with a smile that radiates confidence. 

At Dr Patrick Meaney & Associates we're committed to helping you achieve a smile that looks and feels amazing. Our team of experienced professionals specializes in custom-fitted dentures, ensuring personalized care and exceptional results. Say goodbye to discomfort and hello to a brighter, more confident smile. Contact us today to schedule your consultation and take the first step towards dentures that fit like a dream.
