96 Years Old, Lives in Miller Place, and Still Has Her Teeth

My eldest patient is a 96 year old woman, in reasonably good health and still living at home in Miller Place with her son, who is retired and helps with the housework. She has most of her teeth, and she wears an upper and lower partial denture to replace several teeth that are missing. These partial dentures, over 10 years old, have served her well. She wants to keep the teeth she has: she comes into the office regularly for periodontal maintenance and dental exams. Her homecare is reasonably good. I have replaced several defective dental fillings and restored some decayed areas. We are working together to maintain her dental health – and may she live to 110.
