When it comes to dental care, being in your “Golden Years” can play a very important role. More than just the number of candles on your next birthday cake, the aging process is associated with certain medical conditions that can hinder your ability to maintain your oral health. For example, if you have arthritis in your hands and fingers, it may be difficult to brush and floss. Or, if you have high blood pressure or high cholesterol, you might be on prescription medications that can affect your oral health.

At Chrisman & Wyse Cosmetic & General Dentistry in Bloomington, we understand the specific concerns of senior patients. Whether you suffer from tooth sensitivity or ill-fitting dentures, we can identify and treat all of your dental problems.
