At Union Street Dental Care, we are dedicated to providing excellent care to patients of all ages, including our senior patients. In fact, Dr. Shapira holds a master’s degree in clinical gerontology and is experienced in caring for elderly patients’ unique needs. When you visit our office, Dr. Shapira and Dr. Dintcho will carefully examine your smile to assess your current oral health, listen to your concerns, desires, and questions, and work with you to formulate a personalized treatment plan that fits your oral health care needs and goals.

As you age, it becomes even more important to maintain good oral health. While some people believe it is inevitable to experience tooth loss as you age, that is not true! With proper care, we can help you keep your natural teeth healthy. To maintain good dental health, be certain to brush your teeth at least twice every day, floss at least once a day, and visit the dentist on a regular basis. If you wear dentures, be sure to clean them every day.

If you do experience tooth loss, our dentists and team are here to help you restore your smile. We offer a number of tooth replacement options, including dental implants, dentures, implant-supported dentures, and dental bridges.
