Seniors living in nursing homes or on hospice care can no longer travel into a dental office for care. Medicare does not include dental care in their standard benefit. Older patients do not have the hand strength and dexterity to brush their teeth that well anymore. They have an increased risk of pneumonia due to aspirating dental bacteria plaque while laying back most of the day.
Patients experiencing mobility challenges such as quadriplegia, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease and strokes are unable to travel into a traditional dental office for care. They require special transport vehicles to and a lot of assistance to transfer from the wheelchair to the dental chair. Our bedside care eliminates this inconvenience, stress and uncomfortableness for both the patient and their caregiver.
