Senior Dental Plans
Dental Health Care for Seniors
At Dental Plans Direct, we offer senior dental plans to meet the needs of our retired members. We believe that everyone should be able to enjoy strong oral health, but unfortunately, many seniors lack proper dental coverage. With our senior dental plans, retired men and women can continue to receive needed dental care. If you are seeking affordable dental insurance for yourself or for a parent or grandparent, we invite you to look through our available discount dental plans or contact us at (888) 310-9118 to speak with a representative.
The Importance of Dental Coverage for Seniors
As we get older, our age puts us at risk for a number of oral health problems that we may not be aware of, including:
- Darkening of our teeth
- Dryness of the mouth
- Taste and loss of appetite
- Gum disease and gum discoloration
- Inflammation of the gums
- Tooth loss and jaw problems
- Tooth decay
However, our age is not the sole factor in determining our oral health; certain medications and medical conditions, such as arthritis in your hands and fingers may make brushing and flossing your teeth difficult or impossible to perform thoroughly and properly. In such cases, the importance of regular dental care and thorough examinations is even greater.

Our senior dental plans offer the same savings and services available in our individual and family plans.
