Physical care for your assisted living residents is certainly a priority. Remember that one way to help protect someone’s well-being is to make sure their smile receives the right support. Without good oral hygiene, problems can accumulate and cause more significant consequences than you might expect! Dental decay and gum disease, when left unchecked, can allow bacteria to move to different areas of the body and create new health concerns. These problems also inhibit a person’s ability to bite and chew, which can shrink their diet. We provide oral health services to assisted living facilities throughout Southern California. In addition to helping your residents with smile care, we can provide guidance to your staff to help keep up with preventive care between appointments.
Dental Health Matters At Any Age
A healthy smile is something a person can take pride in at any age. Beyond feeling more comfortable with the way you look, the health of your teeth and gums will also help you maintain your general well-being. Complications with gum disease and dental decay make you vulnerable to bacterial infection; they can also make issues like tooth loss, daily discomfort, and limited bite movement potential problems.
We understand how challenging it can be to make sure every resident at an assisted living facility has the right support. With services we provide, you can count on the people you care for to enjoy the proper care to maintain their smiles!
Arranging Care For The People At Your Facility
We have experience delivering important smile care to residents in the care of assisted living communities. When on site, we can provide a range of services to help people. This ranges from the kinds of preventive treatments that lower future risks for dental trouble to more involved restorative care for active issues. Regularly scheduled care is important, as it makes timely appointments and treatments possible before there are complications that affect patients’ well-being.
We Also Provide Staff Education And Guidance
While we provide important protection on-site, we also help facilities keep up the work of protecting the smiles of their residents by offering counseling to staff. Having the support you need to keep up with patients’ preventive oral health needs can protect them in the time between their appointments. Remember that complications from dental health issues like gum disease can have a worrying influence on threats like cardiovascular disease. When your residents are less likely to have problems develop, these complications are less likely to occur.
