For the homebound elderly, the ability to have fillings in-home is a big boon to dental health. For many elderly patients with issues such as Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, dementia, or other health concerns that make it difficult or impossible to come to an office for treatment, and in-home dentist that offers cleanings, fillings, crowns, extractions, dentures, and more is essential to their health and wellbeing. Providing dental care in home where patients are most comfortable allows us to maintain oral health and prevent pain for those already living with physical or mental health issues.
Over time, acid and bacteria can combine to cause demineralization of the teeth, which results in cavities. If left untreated, the softened area of the tooth can spread until it reaches the pulp of the tooth, which can then result in more serious issues like infection or the necessity of a root canal. Oral and gum disease has a strong link to heart disease, so it’s very important to keep up with dental health, especially for elderly and infirm patients. For those who can no longer easily leave their home, In-House Dental Care and Dr. Nguyen provide fillings in home for convenience and easy access. With our mobile “office,” we’re able to bring all the equipment to you in order to complete your fillings, including composites, paste, lights, and polishing tools. This allows us to provide the best care in the most familiar and comfortable environment for our patients, reducing stress a great deal while providing necessary dental care.
In addition to fillings in home, Dr. Nguyen offers many other dental services that can be performed at residential homes, assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and even hospice care. In-House Dental Care also provides cleanings, crowns, extractions, dentures, and more. Proper dental care is one part of the overall picture of a person’s health, and we’re dedicated to providing the best care for our aging homebound population.
