For seniors, maintaining oral health is extremely important as it can affect overall health. Conversely, other health issues, as well as medications, can compromise your mouth and teeth. However, many seniors are on fixed incomes and are budget conscious. They are concerned about the costs of dental care. Seniors are able to receive discounts at many retail stores, for entertainment tickets, and even for parking. But do dentists give seniors discounts for dental care? Figuring out whether you can obtain senior discounts from dentists in Alberta can be confusing.
At Outdoor Dental, we serve the Calgary SE communities of Seton, Mahogany, Cranston, and Auburn Bay. Dr. Jay Patel is committed to providing comprehensive and preventative dental care, and he has treated hundreds of seniors. His dental practice provides accessible and affordable dental care for seniors by teaming up with AgeCare Seton, and at our NE clinic, AgeCare Skypointe. We provide residents with dental cleanings at our clinic in the west wing of AgeCare Seton and at AgeCare Skypointe.
Dr. Patel recognizes and treats oral health issues which are common among seniors, problems such as dry mouth, gum disease, tooth loss, and root decay. He knows that seniors may have restricted mobility, cognitive impairments, and financial constraints. At Outdoor Dental, our dental hygienist thoroughly removes tartar that can cause gum disease and finish your cleaning with polish and fluoride to leave your teeth feeling smooth.

Are dental visits more important for seniors?
Maintaining your oral health in your senior years is important for your overall health. Sometimes other health issues or medications can have a detrimental effect on your mouth and teeth, and your dentist can recognize small problems before they become large ones, with regular visits.
Some seniors have difficulty brushing and flossing if they have arthritis in their hands or other problems. How do you find the seniors' dentist in Calgary SE who is right for you?
