Dental fillings for long-term care facilities provided by a mobile team
A decayed tooth can make it difficult or painful to eat. Your family member living in a residential care facility, may not be able to communicate the sensations that they are experiencing.
Partnering with Golden Care’s mobile dental service provides your loved one with access to dental exams and X-rays to detect tooth decay before problems are evident to you or other caregivers. As such, their cavity can be repaired with a filling before more serious problems occur.
Does my loved one have a cavity?
Although there are a few signs to look for, you can only truly know how deep a cavity is by having a dental X-ray taken. Contact Golden Care now if you’ve noticed any of the following signs in your loved one’s smile:
- Pain when chewing or biting on the tooth
- A visible hole
- Discolouration or staining in the grooves
- Food getting caught in specific areas
Why not just extract their tooth?
By having a Golden Care mobile dentist repair the area of decay, you can help your loved one avoid having a tooth extracted, and thereby making it more challenging for them to eat. Thanks to best-in-class technology, dental fillings can easily be completed without bringing your loved one into an off-site dental clinic.
The new dental filling is custom designed to bond closely with their tooth to seal out bacteria. This prevents the spread of infection into their dental nerve, while also returning the tooth’s normal function. Depending on the size and location of the cavity, an appropriate material such as composite (white) will be used to restore the tooth.
