Here’s a 2 minutes and 32 seconds video Alzheimer’s Disease and Dental Care.
7% of Australians suffer from Alzheimer’s Disease or a similarly debilitating condition.
That’s roughly 342,000 people.
Poor dental hygiene can have a negative impact on the overall health of a person.
Not maintaining good dental habits can result in higher risks of infections and a stressed immune system.
The best time for the dentist, patient, and family to develop a long-term strategy for dental care is immediately after diagnosis.
Alzheimer’s patients often require special accommodations:
Extra time and patience
Threat free environment in the waiting room and dental theatre
Notification of minor scheduling changes
Allowing a trusted friend, family member, or carer to be with them
Extra explanations and instructions for clarification and reassurance
Delay donning of masks and sanitation gear to avoid dehumanizing the dental theater
Educating and training the patient and carers in specialized homecare
Predictable dental problems should be treated early.
Trying to perform complex dental procedures on a disoriented and frightened patient can be disasterous.
At Prevent Dental Suite, we understand the special needs of Alzheimer’s patients.
We are prepared to provide them with the best service available.
