The golden years of your life can often be marred by poor dental health as the teeth age and become more susceptible to tooth decay, gum disease, and more. While regular dental visits are important at any age, we highly encourage you to maintain dental checkup vigilance as your approach and enjoy the years of your retirement.

Our team in Richmond, VA, and Chamberlayne, VA, can help you preserve your natural smile for a lifetime through dental exams and cleanings. We hope you will visit Morrison Dental Group regularly for the following dental checkup components:

Dental exams: Shrinking tooth nerves can cause your teeth to become less sensitive to dental problems such as decay. Regular dental exams can reveal cavities and disease that you did not realize were developing. Because teeth become more vulnerable with age, it is more important than ever to have an experienced dentist examine your smile.
Dental cleanings: Bacteria left in your smile can lead to a gum infection, which is the number one cause of tooth loss. Our skilled and gentle dental hygienist will thoroughly clean around your teeth and gum line to remove plaque deposits and help prevent gum disease.

During your dental checkup, we will also discuss any changes that need to be made to your dental health, such as helpful oral care techniques or important treatment procedures. Please do not delay a visit to the dentist if you are due for your next dental visit in Richmond, VA, and Chamberlayne, VA.
