As we age, our body begins to show signs of wear and tear, and our teeth and gums are no exceptions. Because of this natural wear on our teeth and gums, they’ll need extra special care and attention. The elderly are more likely to experience higher than normal tooth decay, receding gums, brittle teeth, and more prone to broken teeth.
As our parent’s age, we end up inheriting the role of caregiver. When we were kids, they made sure we took care of our teeth and went for dental check-ups, and now the roles have reversed. It’s important, that as caregivers, we take an active role in their oral health.
Geriatric House Call Dentistry is here to educate caregivers and their elderly parents on issues such as cracked tooth repair in NYC . Dr. Alisa Kauffman, one of the Top 25 dentists in the nation, has made it her mission to reach out to the Geriatric community in NYC. Dr. Kauffman sets herself apart by making house calls to seniors in need of dental care and helping the elderly with cracked tooth repair in NYC.
Because elderly communities are often neglected, they miss out on receiving high-quality dental care. Since some of the geriatric community are unable to leave their homes for regular dental check-ups they are more susceptible to preventable dental health issues.
Dr. Kauffman has changed the way the elderly community receives dental care by making house calls to reach immobile patients, especially ones with dementia, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s Disease. Dr. Kauffman will treat the issue in a timely manner, and offer prevention tips to maintain good oral health habits.
See why Dr. Kauffman is the best dentist when it comes to the elderly and cracked tooth repair in NYC. Call Geriatric House Call Dentistry today at 917-826-6278 to schedule an appointment.
