At Medico M.D., we provide DFW Metroplex, San Antonio, and Waco seniors comprehensive dental and medical healthcare services that are seamlessly integrated. We work in complete cooperation, so our patients receive the personalized treatment plans they deserve to maintain optimal health at every life stage. Keep reading if you want to learn more about common medical and dental concerns faced by senior patients in our office and how the Medico M.D. team can help.
Common Senior Dental Health Concerns
Senior patients may need to take a little extra time with their oral health care routines, and we often encourage them to visit us for more frequent professional cleanings. As we age, saliva production decreases, and for many patients, an increased number of prescription medications are also taken. That means you are much more likely to experience dry mouth. Without adequate levels of neutralizing saliva, your smile is at greater risk for tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss. Our dental team members will partner with you to create an ongoing plan to keep your smile whole and healthy with great in-office preventive, restorative, and cosmetic treatments. We can also work with you to improve your at-home care with improved techniques and better oral hygiene products.
Common Medical Concerns
Aging also brings changes to our whole body health. From bone density concerns and hormonal shifts to chronic illnesses like diabetes and cardiovascular disease, staying healthy can be a struggle for seniors. That’s why our team wants to partner with you to maintain good health. We encourage patients to visit us for preventive healthcare appointments at least once each year. During these annual exams, we’ll keep track of your cholesterol, blood pressure, hormone function, bone density, and other indicators of common health concerns for seniors. Visit us for all of your necessary senior healthcare services, including:
- General exams and physicals
- Diabetes treatment and maintenance
- Hypertension management
- Cholesterol treatments
- Hormonal (testosterone and estrogen) imbalance therapies
- Prostate blood tests
