One of our most essential services is teeth cleaning in home, where we bring our mobile unit to you with all the necessary equipment to provide a full cleaning. This routine dental care is important to prevent gum disease and tooth decay, and it can be very difficult to keep up with once a patient is homebound or dealing with physical or mental degeneration. Teeth cleaning allows for the removal of tartar or calculus, the buildup of plaque and calcium on the teeth over time. Dr. Nguyen acts as a dental hygienist in home, bringing high-quality dental care to the place where patients feel most comfortable.
Despite all our best intentions and meticulous brushing and flossing, everyone will still develop some tartar buildup that must be removed by a dentist. When plaque isn’t effectively removed, it causes gum irritation, inflammation, and bleeding, which can’t heal until the plaque is gone. By offering teeth cleaning in home, Dr. Nguyen is able to ensure that senior patients receive this vital care to maintain their oral health. It doesn’t just stop at teeth cleaning — we also offer fillings, crowns, extractions, dentures, and more. Oral health doesn’t only affect teeth. Numerous studies have shown a strong link between gum disease and heart disease, and some complications of aging, along with other diseases, can also affect teeth and gums. In addition, with the elderly, overgrowth of plaque can lead to inhalation of plaque biofilm, which could potentially contribute to aspiration pneumonia. This sort of illness can easily lead to deadly complications, which is why it’s important to get professional cleaning regularly.
Dr. Nguyen is a skilled geriatric dentist who found his calling when he realized his own 84-year-old father was having trouble receiving regular medical and dental care due to health issues that made him unable to leave the house. After conducting some research, Dr. Nguyen found that there was a serious need for in-house dental care for the elderly homebound population, and his mobile practice now serves Orange, Riverside, San Diego, and Los Angeles counties. With state of the art equipment and a history of work with seniors, he can offer the best care to people residing in assisted living, nursing homes, hospice care, residential homes and more, including routine teeth cleaning in home.
