As we get older, our teeth and gums respond to aging in the same manner the rest of the body does. Over the years, it can become more difficult to maintain good oral health as teeth and gums decay at an accelerated rate. Understanding how your teeth and gums respond to aging can help you care for them.

Osteoporosis Medication and Dental Care

It is very important to inform our dental team if you are taking bisphosphonates for Osteoporosis. Patients who take this type of common drug class may develop a condition called osteonecrosis. This is a rare condition that may cause severe damage to the jawbone. If you plan to stop taking this medication, please discuss this with your regular physician.

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are your third molars and the last ones to surface. Many patients do not have room within their facial structure to support the growth of wisdom teeth. This can lead to pain that is caused by inflammation when opening your jaw. If wisdom teeth are bothersome and left untreated, serious problems may arise such as, tooth decay and gum infections. We recommend that every patient come in before the age of 18 to have an evaluation for possible extraction.

This office is awesome! I'm very afraid of Dentist and never took care of my teeth because of it. I went to Dr. Friedman to get dentures and have never been treated with such care and understanding. The whole process was stress and pain free. I would have done it a long time ago if I had found Dr. Friedman sooner. The new dentures fit like a dream and the staff is second to none! They are so awesome that sometimes I wish I still had my real teeth so I would have to go back to see them more. I highly recommend Ray Dental Group!
