Frail Elderly

Everyone needs to see a dentist regularly and this is just as important as you grow older.

There are many factors which may make older people more susceptible to dental disease e.g. use of medications may have unintended consequences and some older adults may not have the physical or mental capacity to maintain good oral health.

We have an experienced team who will provide dental care for frail elderly patients who may now find it difficult to visit a regular high street dentist, for example owing to being in a wheelchair, having mobility difficulties or maybe with a neurological condition such as dementia or Parkinson’s disease.

We can also offer advice to carers and family about the best ways to help maintain good oral health as people grow older.
