Dental care has an impact on our overall health, unfortunately, many older adults have difficulty getting to the dentist due to limited mobility or multiple health problems. A concierge dentist Manhattan residents trust can help you or your loved one keep healthy.
How can your dentist help you stay healthy? Many diseases have symptoms that originate in the mouth, and when your concierge dentist in NYC, examines your mouth, she can find evidence of any number of conditions or diseases.
Alzheimer’s and Dementia. Maintaining proper dental care for seniors with Alzheimer’s disease may become increasingly challenging because they might forget to brush their teeth or forget how to brush their teeth.
