The Magic Of Dental Care For Elderly Patients
If you think that finding proper and adequate dental care for elderly patients is virtually impossible, think again.
In years past dental care for senior citizens was hard to come by if the patient was homebound or confined to a senior care facility. Although not where it needs to be, dental care of the aging population is beginning to look promising.
Dr. Alisa Kauffman of Geriatric House Call Dentistry is a frontrunner and trailblazer in the industry. Geriatric dentistry is not what it used to be. Today, with Dr. Kauffman leading the way, the dental office will come to your aging loved one.
3 Seemingly Magic Secrets to Making Dental Care For Elderly Patients Pleasant
- Bringing the dental office to the patient. That’s what Dr. Kauffman does. She is committed to bringing the very best experience in dental care for elderly patients right to their living rooms, bedrooms, or recliners. Being well versed in treating even the most vulnerable of patients, Dr. Kauffman can perform procedures and treatments from routine checkups to emergency extractions right in the comfort of their familiar surroundings. This is a huge deal since The American Dental Association recommends having a dental checkup at least twice a year.
- No need to drill every cavity. Geriatric patients cannot tolerate the drill very well. That’s why Dr. Kauffman employs the use of silver diamine fluoride for use as a tooth desensitizer. It’s an antimicrobial liquid that the Food and Drug Administration deemed safe and can be painlessly brushed on cavities to stop tooth decay! No drill means less stress and fear for the aging, sometimes fearful, patient.
- Compassion. Above all, a gentle touch, along with a caring, passionate heart and soothing demeanor can calm even the most apprehensive of patients. With her extensive knowledge base, coupled with her vastly unique experience, Dr. Kauffman can and will bring a level of expertise and compassion to not only the general dental care for elderly patients but specifically to your loved one in the very place they need to feel the safest and most secure.
