Good dental hygiene and health smiles are beneficial for patients of all ages, including those seniors and those with illnesses and disabilities that prevent them from scheduling in-person appointments at dental offices in their areas. Which is why we offer a mobile option, so we come to you or your loved ones! Your HomeCare Dentists can provide treatment for people in assisted living situations.
We Can Come to You
We know that for many people in assisted living situations, there isn’t a feasible way to attend routine dental treatments, such as checkups and cleanings, or care to control gum disease and other concerns that impact older patients or those with special needs. With their limited dexterity, this could mean their smiles are especially vulnerable to painful issues and even tooth loss. But our mobile unit can come to your family member’s facility, working with your staff to provide care at your loved one’s bedside. In fact, we routinely offer care for patients in over 85 facilities in our area!
Our Treatment Options
Our team can provide preventive care to help manage oral health, offering detailed checkups, dental cleanings, and even taking x-rays. We have a digital x-ray machine and intraoral camera systems to offer diagnosis with precision and accuracy, so we can provide treatment for smiles in need. With digital technology, we can share these images with specialists as needed, and communicate clearly with family members and staff.
In addition, we can also offer repair for decayed, infected, or damaged teeth with composite resin and lifelike crowns. For those with missing teeth, we can secure partial and full dentures, dental bridges, denture adjustments, and relines. As needed, we can also conduct safe and gentle tooth extractions.
Helping Patients with Alzheimer’s and Dementia
Our team members are skilled and experienced in helping patients with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, offering a compassionate approach to treatment that takes their unique needs into account. The key to whole body wellness often involves good oral health, and we want to provide that, as older patients and especially those with memory-related issues may be more likely to neglect oral health and develop serious concerns. We also care for those afraid of crowds, and can help smiles in agoraphobic patients with ease.
If you have any questions about our approach to mobile dentistry and assisted living, then contact our team today to learn more. Everyone deserves a healthy and beautiful smile, and we’re ready to help make that a reality for your loved ones.
