Receiving the proper care you need to receive dental crowns in your home can be difficult. For the elderly and infirm who are homebound by necessity, they often suffer when it comes to medical or dental care because they don’t have the means to access it. This can create a great deal of discomfort and pain, as well as worsening health issues if an infection or broken tooth is not properly treated. To help mediate this need, In-House Dental Care offers to place a new crown in your house, bringing all the latest equipment and skilled geriatric dentistry you need directly to your door. By making a crown house call, Dr. Nguyen can provide patients with cognitive and physical disorders the dental care they need to remain healthy in the comfort of their own home.
A dental crown is a sort of “cap” that goes over a broken or worn down tooth, often those that have been filed down by a dentist. They are often used over teeth that have undergone a root canal treatment. They can be porcelain over a metal core, or of full Zirconia. Many older people have one or more crowns due to general wear and tear on teeth over the years. However, it’s an involved process that takes about two weeks to complete, so it’s often not possible for homebound patients to get the proper care they need. This is why Dr. Nguyen places crowns in home, making house calls for residential homes, independent living facilities, nursing homes, assisted living, and even hospice care. Rather than coming into an office multiple times and being in an unfamiliar environment, which may upset people with conditions like Alzheimer’s Disease, Dr. Nguyen can make direct trips to place a new crown in-house, effectively doing all the work (tooth preparation, molding, temporary crown, complete crown) where the patient is most relaxed and comfortable.
We are happy to discuss options for patients who need dental crowns placed in-home. In addition to crowns, In-House Dental Care also offers cleanings, fillings, extractions, dentures, and more. Reach out today for more information.
