Request tooth extractions from a mobile dental team
Does your resident or loved one have a severe toothache? Removing a tooth is usually recommended if it is not possible to restore it with a root canal, crown, or filling. It may be that the senior you know is in pain or has a severe infection (such as periodontal disease or an abscess) to the point where it is better to have their tooth removed.
To ensure that the process is as comfortable as possible, a Golden Care dentist will use local anesthesia without epinephrine (to reduce heart complications.) After the tooth is removed, a dressing is placed in the socket and sutures are used to stabilize the area during healing.
After a tooth removal
If the tooth’s location impacts on the ability to speak or eat, they will need to have their missing tooth replaced.
Fortunately, the tooth replacement can be fitted by Golden Care’s mobile dental practice visiting the residential facility, so that your family member does not have to be moved off-site. Not only does this make it more comfortable for your loved one, it is also easier for your family and the residential facility operators.
