Aged Care Dental

Your dental needs will change throughout your lifetime, which is why we provide a customised preventative dental care plan for every patient we see. Woombye Dental welcomes all ages, and we especially enjoy seeing our older patients, getting to know them and hearing about their life experiences, and taking care of them.

We would love to welcome you to our practice if you are older. Woombye Dental is easily accessible with plenty of on-site parking, and we accept DVA.



How Can Age Affect Oral Health?

As you get older, your risk of oral problems can increase. This is because many older people will need medications that can cause dry mouth or xerostomia, where they cannot produce enough saliva. A lack of saliva can make you more vulnerable to tooth decay and gum disease. Additionally, some people find their dexterity or eyesight declines, making it harder to brush and floss adequately. Other problems include tooth loss, making it harder to enjoy food and social activities.

Will I Lose Teeth with Age?

Tooth loss can be a risk at any age, but we focus on providing the very highest quality preventative dental care to help avoid this. By working with you to discover any issues that could affect your dental health, we can take preventative steps to reduce the risk of tooth loss, so ideally you will retain your natural teeth for life.

Keeping Your Mouth in Great Shape

We have many preventative and restorative solutions available to help ensure you enjoy a healthy smile, no matter your age. These include oral health products and advice to combat the effects of dry mouth. Our knowledgeable and friendly team can also discuss suitable dental tools for people with limited dexterity, such as larger-handled toothbrushes or electric toothbrushes, pre-threaded flossers or water flossers. Our restorative solutions for tooth loss include dentures, dental bridges, and the latest dental implant treatments.

By working closely with you, we can help you maintain a healthy mouth, protecting your oral and overall health.

Our friendly dental team is here to help and answer any questions that you may have. You can call us on (07) 5442 2136 or visit the practice at 31 Blackall Street, Woombye QLD 4559.
