Special care dentistry involves dental procedures that are done for old age people or people with special needs. All the dental procedures come with their own pros and cons and all of them are suitable only for a certain group of people.

Old age people have special needs and so are people with some congenital deformities. For them, we provide all types of special care dentistry procedures including geriatric dentistry procedures and several maxillofacial prostheses.

What is geriatric dentistry?

Geriatric dentistry refers to taking care of dental needs of old people. It involves diagnosis, prevention and treatment for all age-related dental problems. Often, age related problems such as diabetes can cause poor oral health. Geriatric dentistry deals with any such issues and treats them perfectly.

What are the most common problems affecting old people?

Presence of root caries, periodontal disease and xerostomia are oral diseases that are found majorly affecting the older population.

What all maxillofacial prostheses are given to people with special needs?

Sometimes, people may born with congenital deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate or enamel hypoplasia or dental abnormalities. We have a solution for all of these conditions. Being special just means you need some special care. At our clinic, we provide maxillofacial prosthesis like an obturator to treat clefts. Not just for clefts, we provide prostheses for other ailments as well. Visit us to know more about special care dentistry.
