I want to talk about Alzheimer’s disease, which is a progressive condition affecting memory and mental functions. It’s the most common cause of dementia, making up a big portion of all dementia cases. It’s important to know that Alzheimer’s is not a normal part of aging and will worsen over time.
For patients with Alzheimer’s or Dementia, receiving dental care can be challenging. During a dental procedure, they might have moments of clarity, but they can also become scared or confused. This can lead to restlessness and sudden movements, which could cause injuries.
To make your dental experience less stressful, we offer IV sedation dentistry. This helps prevent physical and emotional distress for patients with Alzheimer’s or Dementia. Your comfort and well-being are our top priorities, and we’re here to provide the best care possible.
If you have any concerns or questions about dental care for your loved ones with Alzheimer’s or Dementia, please feel free to talk to us. We’re here to support you and your family every step of the way.
