Geriatric Dentistry in Lexington, SC
Northwood Dental Associates is committed to caring for the aging population at our Lexington, SC office. Located in the heart of town, we are close to several retirement homes and assisted living facilities and just a 15-minute drive from Lexington Medical Center.
Our team members would be happy to talk with you regarding caring for you or your aging loved one. Our treatment rooms are wheel chair accessible and we take extra care to make sure the appointment is calm and comfortable for our older patients. We listen carefully to the specific needs and concerns and provide neck pillows and blankets if needed.
Dr. Rodgers is trained to treat the senior population and routinely provide our elderly patients with oral hygiene instructions and fluoride trays to help decrease the high decay rate that can come from medication induced dry-mouth. Depending on the patient’s health history, we do many specialized procedures within our office (implants, root canals, and extractions), which minimizes having to travel to other locations for multiple appointments. Our dentists are also highly skilled in making and caring for complete and partial dentures.
Electric toothbrushes, water picks, and frequent dental cleanings are wonderful tools to help senior adults maintain their natural teeth for as long as possible. Call today to set up a consult with Dr. Rodgers – our treatment plans are always conservative and with the best interest of the patient in mind.
