Dental Services for Seniors in Carson City
Seniors often experience dental issues related to gum disease and tooth loss as they grow older. At Absolute Dental in Carson City, we believe every patient deserves quality dental care. That’s why we offer geriatric dental services to help our senior patients keep their smiles healthy and strong.
Our senior dental services include:
- Dentures. Dentures are an affordable and practical solution for missing teeth. Our Carson City dentists offer full or partial dentures for a natural-looking smile.
- Dental Implants. Depending on the condition of your jaw, dental implants can replace missing teeth and preventing bone loss for senior patients. Check with your dentist to see if you qualify.
- Dental Crowns. If you have an existing crown that cracked or has fallen out, or if you need a new crown to protect a weakened tooth, our senior dental specialists offer restorative crowns that are durable and long-lasting.
- Dental Bridges. Dental bridges are a great choice for geriatric patients with missing teeth when dentures or dental implants are not the best options.
- Root Canals. Root canals are a common procedure for senior dental patients. When tooth decay causes an infection, our Carson City dentists will perform a root canal to relieve pain and restore the tooth.
- Sedation Options. To help our senior patients feel comfortable when undergoing dental work, we offer sedation dentistry options for many treatments and procedures.
- Oral Cancer Screenings. Because oral cancer is very treatable when caught early, our dentists use special screening tools to detect cancer in its early stages for better recovery results.

Common Senior Dental Problems
Many dental patients over the age of 65 have issues related to neglecting their dental health when they were younger. Some people did not follow a dental hygiene routine or skipped seeing the dentist for teeth cleanings and exams.
However, even seniors who did everything to care for their teeth the right way will often have oral health challenges as they grow older. As a natural part of the aging process, seniors may experience:
- Stained teeth
- Tooth sensitivity
- Gum disease
- Bone loss
- Dry mouth
- Mouth irritation
- Tooth loss
- Oral cancer
Treating these issues will help prevent further damage and ensure your oral health is where it should be. If you’re experiencing any of these dental problems, the geriatric specialists at Absolute Dental can help.
FAQS About Senior Dental Care
Dental patients over the age of 65 should see their dentist at least twice a year for routine check-ups, which include teeth cleanings, x-rays and a dental exam. If senior patients are experiencing tooth sensitivity, gum issues or any other oral problems, they should schedule an additional appointment with their dentist to seek treatment rather than waiting for their next biannual visit.
We recommend that senior dental patients get an oral cancer screening at least once a year. We’ll check for any signs of cancer using non-invasive methods that are quick and painless. However, if you have a higher risk of developing oral cancer, you should be screened during every dental visit.
For seniors without dental insurance, there are options that will make dental care easy and affordable. Absolute Dental offers financing for those who qualify through Care Credit, or seniors can become a member of our Smile Saver program for access to significant discounts on treatments and procedures. Also, check out our limited-time offers to get the dental care you need at discounted prices. We also accept Medicaid.
