As you age, your dental needs will begin to change. Many aging adults experience dental problems ranging from darkened teeth and dry mouth to tooth loss and gum disease. To effectively address these concerns, it is important that you choose an experienced dentist who specializes in dental care for seniors.

At Farhan Qureshi, DDS, we help patients of all ages achieve their best smile possible with top notch dental care services. Our office offers complete dental care including general, cosmetic, implant and sedation dentistry. We strive to make your experience both comfortable and rewarding at all times.

Geriatric Dentistry

You deserve a lifetime of excellent oral health. Dr. Qureshi carries extensive experience in the field of geriatric dentistry, and can address the unique dental concerns that seniors face with the following dental services:

  • Periodontal Care
  • Dry mouth relief
  • Dentures
  • Dental Implants
  • Sleep Apnea and Snoring Prevention

Implant Supported Dentures

Tooth loss is one of the most common dental concerns for seniors. When you lose teeth, your jaw bone starts to shrink, which can change the dimension and structure of your face, particularly around the mouth. You may notice that wrinkles start to form, which gives you an older appearance and can even change the profile of your face. We offer complete or partial dentures in order to revive your smile and reduce the “aged” look created by missing teeth.

If you are unhappy with your dentures, you may consider getting implant supported dentures as an alternative. Unlike dentures that are held in place by adhesives, implant supported dentures allow you to eat and talk comfortably without the concern of your dentures falling out or slipping. You no longer have to be inconvenienced by messy denture adhesives. Dr. Qureshi offers implant supported dentures made to look identical to your natural teeth, allowing you to smile, speak and chew with confidence once again.
