As your loved one embraces old age, it’s difficult to predict exactly how their quality of life will fare. The ideal scenario is that, despite the normal side effects that come with aging, all other physical and mental capacities remain unafflicted.
However, we can never expect nor assume that life will progress that way. Physical ailments often hinder mobility, some level of memory loss is possible, and the state of bodily health progressively worsens. Oral health is no exception.
Deteriorating teeth and gums do not only affect a senior’s appearance, they are culprits in worsening physical and mental health as well. Conditions that we would otherwise think were disconnected, like cardiovascular disease or dementia, are more likely in seniors who have poor oral hygiene. And, for those suffering from any of the aforementioned conditions, a treacherous – and even fatal – cycle begins to develop where everything works in tandem with one another to quicken the worsening of symptoms.
As their loved one, you want nothing but the best for your aging parents. A caring physician to look over their health complications, a renowned hospital to provide them with top-quality treatment, a respected nursing home to care for them full-time, and even an experienced dental professional to service their dental needs.
At Onsite Dentists Of Texas, we do what other dentists don’t – and can’t – do. Our patients are residents in full-time care facilities who are unable to travel to a traditional dentist’s office or, in severe cases, are immobile altogether.
