Geriatric dentistry and Special Care Patient
1 minute(s) read
Geriatric dentistry is a crucial part of the health maintenance mechanism for the elderly and medically compromised individuals. On average, people above the age of 65 years are expected to suffer from one or more chronic medical conditions that require consideration before initiating any dental treatment.
At Bangkok Hospital Dental Center, we then deliver advanced comprehensive dentistry for patients with severe medical, physical, and mental problems (pre and post organ transplant patients, cancer patients, immunocompromised patients, special needs patients). We also provides dental services under IV sedation and in an operating room setting for patients unable to receive treatment in a routine dental setting. Dental services are also provided on an emergency basis for in-patients and out-patients after hours.
Not only, we offer the service of dental care to older adults, but we also provide the extensive dental treatment for the special needs patients involving the diagnosis, prevention,and treatment of problems associated with normal aging and age-related diseases as part of an interdisciplinary team with other health care professionals.
