Most people requiring special care dentistry are in the older age groups.
Functionally dependent older people have higher rates of tooth loss, a greater prevalence of denture related problems, and are less likely to have seen a dentist or clinical dental technician for 5 years.
Mobility and/or the ability for self-care is often reduced by physical disability, mental impairment or chronic disease.
A combination of functional limitation, multiple drug use and limited access to dental care puts older people at greater risk of poor oral health.
For dementia patients our expert staff are trained and skilled to carry out dental examinations in a care home or a home environment and always communicate the treatment options.
Our Clinical Dental Technician knows how to utilise specialist techniques to ensure that patients with communication difficulties will have received an accurate dental examination.
