Rock Hill SC Geriatric Dentistry

Geriatric dentistryCranford Dental has long been a conscientious provider of dental care for senior adults. All of our dentists and hygienists have been educated through continuing education for the needs of our patients as they grow older.

With older adults, we are concerned about increased medications that may cause dry mouth and about the loss of dexterity that may lessen the ability to keep the oral tissues clean.

Our dentists want to ensure that our patients can chew and smile and enjoy good oral health throughout their lifetime.

Our location at the corner of Ebenezer Road and Herlong Avenue makes us convenient to the local retirement centers in Rock Hill. We are near Piedmont Medical Center and only a few blocks from Chandler Place, Westminster Towers, and Park Pointe Village. Drivers from these villages know exactly how to find us.

Give Cranford Dental a call if you would like to discuss concerns with you teeth and mouth. Contact us at 803-324-7670 or email our office for an appointment.

What do we offer older adults?

Geriatric dental experience at Cranford DentalThere is technically no “geriatric dentist” specialty. We have developed a special interest in this area during our many years of treating elderly patients in our Rock Hill office. 

  • We take extra time to listen to the specifics of what our geriatric patients need and want.
  • We design a treatment plan that lines up with the patient’s desire to restore and maintain her teeth.
  • We are not pushy or demanding as we suggest what we see as the best options for overall health and well-being of each patient. As with all of our patients, we desire “to do the right thing, at the right time, for the right reason”.
  • We often make recommendations that will help the senior adults maintain their teeth: electric or sonic toothbrushes, water picks, fluoride gel use, bleach trays to reduce bacterial plaque, and (if needed) more frequent preventative dental cleanings.

Our goal is to provide great care for a very reasonable cost and to make sure that patients keep as many of their natural teeth as possible.

Please email or call Cranford Dental at 803-324-7670 if you have questions about geriatric care or if we can help you in any way.
