Geriatric Dentisty

Dental care for the aging

Geriatric dentistry is dedicated to the identification, prevention, and treatment of dental problems linked to the ageing process.

Elderly individuals often encounter age-related dental issues, making it imperative to exercise exceptional caution when performing dental procedures on them, given their increased vulnerability to chronic health conditions like hypertension, cardiac ailments, renal problems, etc.

We have a team of highly skilled and compassionate doctors dedicated to the well-being of elderly patients. In addition, we have cutting-edge technology at our disposal to offer comprehensive health support whenever it is required.

Wondering when to schedule a dental appointment?

  • Teeth darkening resulting from the thinning of the outer enamel or other age-related dental issues.
  • Dry mouth, a condition stemming from reduced saliva flow due to various medical treatments.
  • Reduced sense of taste, either due to medication or the natural ageing process.
  • Root decay caused by gum recession, exposing the roots to decay-causing acids.
  • Gum diseases, which can develop due to factors such as tobacco use, poor diets, underlying medical conditions, and unhealthy oral practices.
  • Tooth loss resulting from decay or gum diseases.
  • Oral thrush, characterised by white, slightly raised areas inside the mouth, which can be caused by diseases or medications that weaken the immune system.

Advanced infrastructure for managing emergencies

Studies indicate that regular geriatric dental healthcare can help prevent or even eradicate specific oral diseases and age-related conditions, such as stroke, diabetes, and heart disease among the elderly.

This serves as our primary benchmark before initiating any procedures for our elderly patients. We diligently monitor vital signs, including pulse rate, blood pressure, SpO2, ECG, and blood sugar levels, using our cutting-edge equipment, the Mindray-IMEC10. 

Additionally, our facility is equipped with emergency resources, such as vital sign monitoring devices, a general anaesthesia workstation (Datex Ohmeda ZY9100), central oxygen supply, and a complete inventory of emergency medications—all readily available for the treatment of elderly patients.

24*7 on-call general physician

Systemic complications, such as diabetes, heart issues, kidney problems, and various other health concerns, are prevalent among geriatric patients. To ensure prompt response to emergencies, we maintain a 24/7 on-call general physician and an experienced anaesthetist who are ready to address any unexpected situations during procedures.

These exceptional healthcare facilities make Maeoris the best dental care facility for providing the highest level of care to your elderly loved ones.
