Dental Services for Seniors in Reno, NV
Senior dental issues can range anywhere from gum disease to tooth loss, and every patient deserves quality dental care to address these needs. Absolute Dental offers geriatric dental services that will help our mature patients smile with confidence!
Our dental services for seniors include:
- Dentures. Dentures are one of the most common treatments our senior patients seek. Our Reno dentists offer full or partial dentures that are durable and easy to clean.
- Dental Implants. For geriatric dental patients with missing teeth, dental implants are an excellent option to improve the appearance of your smile while also preventing bone loss in the jaw.
- Dental Crowns. Seniors often have an existing crown that breaks, falls off or loosens over the years. Our professional dentists can get you fitted for a new crown quickly and have you back to full functionality in no time.
- Dental Bridges. Offering another option for geriatric patients who have experienced tooth loss, dental bridges are a great alternative to dentures or dental implants.
- Root Canals. As we grow older, tooth decay can take its toll and create an infection within the tooth. When this happens, our Reno dentists provide root canals to relieve pain and restore the affected tooth.
- Sedation Options. To provide a calm and comfortable experience, we offer sedation dentistry for some treatments and procedures.
- Oral Cancer Screenings. Oral cancer is treatable when discovered early. We can detect oral cancer in the early stages through specialized oral cancer screenings.

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 in Reno 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.
