Geriatric dentistry is the delivery of dental care to older adults involving diagnosis, prevention, management and treatment of problems associated with age related diseases. The mouth is referred to as a mirror of overall health, reinforcing that oral health is an integral part of general health. In the elderly population poor oral health has been considered a risk factor for general health problems.
Older adults are more susceptible to oral conditions or diseases due to an increase in chronic conditions and physical/mental disabilities.Thus, the elderly form a distinct group in terms of provision of care. The most common oral conditions in geriatric patients are tooth loss, dental caries, periodontitis, dry mouth and oral cancer. Each can affect the quality of life.
At Kothamas Dental Care, We handle these conditions with more care and provide the best solution to the patients with a gentle approach towards the satisfactory results.
