Dental Health Problems

Aging happens to all of us. And there are 4 Major health concerns to look out for when it comes to dental health as we age.

Old Fillings Leak

Massive decay results underneath that usually does NOT appear in x-rays and does NOT hurt. Unless you use a magnifying camera to see the tell tale cracks and openings that CANNOT be felt with a dental probe, your tooth will rot and you will not know until it abscesses or breaks off. If you have old fillings, you are at risk for root canals and broken teeth.

Gum Disease Is Silent

Gum disease causes the bone to dissolve under the gum line. It does NOT hurt and may not show up in x-rays. Unless the hygienist carefully measures with a probe EVERY check-up, you could develop silent bone loss that can cause tooth loss. Adults with gum disease need different treatments than just twice a year cleanings.

Gum disease is not ¨just about your gums¨

The newest medical research proves a direct link between gum inflammation and heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and some forms of cancer. Uncontrolled bacteria and gum inflammation in the mouth travels throughout the body resulting in greater risk of heart attacks and strokes.

Worn Dark Teeth Make You Look Older.

We do want to get older; we just do not want to look older. While baby boomers are getting face lifts, eye jobs and filling their faces with fillers and Botox that wear off in just a few months, they are often ignoring the most obvious sign of aging; worn and yellow teeth.

What Our Patients Say

I came here absolutely petrified – Literally shaking in my chair. Everybody here really put me at ease and made me feel comfortable and confident that they were not going to let anything bad happen to me. I had the sedation dentistry work done and it was a complete success. I didn’t remember feeling anything and my recovery was minimal – I was up and at-’em by the next day. And now when I come here I don’t need the sedation. I feel comfortable enough to let Dr. Simon do what he needs to do.


I had some pretty crummy dental experiences when I was younger. As a physician I knew the importance of dental care, but I really ignored my teeth. I got a few flyers from Dental Care of Stamford and thought well maybe I’ll just call. I had such a pleasant experience from my first contact with them. I was quite nervous and asked for sedation dentistry. I don’t even remember the experience so it was great! I’ve come back since then and I really recommend Dental Care of Stamford to my patients, friends, family and anyone else.
