Finding the right family dentist in Madera that meets all of your family’s needs is important. At Keledjian Dental, we welcome new patients of all ages to join our dental family. From toddlers to seniors and everyone in between, we focus on treating your unique needs based on your medical history and adjust treatment for every life stage.
Many patients do not realize that elderly patients require special dental care to help them stay healthy enough to eat a nutritious diet. Having a healthy diet improves your overall health and increases your enjoyment of life!
Increased Risk of Gum Disease
As patients age, their risk of gum disease increases. This is affected by reduced saliva production, hormonal changes, and reduced dexterity due to arthritis and pain.
When we perform a dental cleaning, we customize it to meet your changing needs throughout your changing life stages. Your dentistry is never one-size-fits-all. If you need more frequent dental cleanings or if you need a more focused dental cleaning, we are here for you and will do what it takes to help you stay healthy as you age.
Keeping your teeth healthy is important. We strive to keep as many of your natural teeth as possible because it is usually what is best for your oral health. If an extraction becomes necessary, we will provide options to replace missing teeth, so that you can maintain a healthy diet.
Increased Risk of Oral Cancer
Your dentist is often the first to notice suspicious lesions in and around your mouth. As you age, your risk of oral cancer increases. We provide life-saving oral cancer screenings for all of our patients and encourage patients with full dentures to take advantage of this service.
If you are seeking dental care for yourself or an elderly family member, Dr. Keledjian is a family dentist in Madera that has experience working with patients of all ages and looks forward to partnering with you in achieving excellent oral health. Please, feel free to give our office a call today.
