Elder oral health services provided on site
Our oral care services help dependent elders living in nursing facilities by helping preserve their smile, maintain their ability to eat, enhance the tasting of food, and freshen their breath. More importantly, we are maintaining and improving their dental health which prevents mouth pain, fewer cavities, and less gum diseases. Regular oral care also improves systemic health by reducing the incidence of aspiration pneumonia, assisting in the control of diabetes, lessening the chances of heart diseases and stroke, and slowing the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. Our oral care can help lead to fewer trips to the dental office, hospital admissions, and systemic infections leading to less money spent on dental bills, hospital bills, and medications. We provide all the necessary oral care products including toothpaste, toothbrushes, and preventive over the counter xylitol products.
ONCE WEEKLY WE COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING:
REMOVAL OF BIOFILM BUILD-UP BY BRUSHING AND OVER THE COUNTER INTERDENTAL AIDS.
CLEANING OF REMOVABLE ORAL APPLIANCES.
A NON IRRITATING ANTIMICROBIAL ORAL RINSE.
NEW DENTAL SUPPLIES ARE PROVIDED WITH EACH VISIT.
We work with the efforts of the care team at the nursing facility and can alert them of any potential dental issues. S.O.S providers are on-site so you never have to worry about transportation.
Our goal and passion is working with your loved one to help improve their quality of life. The Benjamin Franklin quote, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” is so true and vital in the care of the dependent elder population. S.O.S is here to respond to the call of help needed for our dependent seniors when it comes to their oral health!
