Geriatric Dental Care

Let us give back to our elders.

Geriatric patients are those over the age of 65 who require assistance in caring for their dentition due to frailty and impaired dexterity as a result of their age and the inevitable systemic diseases that affect them. Tooth loss, dental caries, periodontitis, dry mouth, and oral cancer are the most common oral conditions in geriatric patients. Each can have an impact on one’s quality of life.

Geriatric Patient Management

Oral health care is more than a personal preference or a matter of convenience. It is required due to the compromised eating habits caused by swallowing difficulties or tongue and mouth movements, impaired speech, and gross changes in the face that are unavoidable with tooth loss.

Dentures are prosthetic appliances with teeth that are made to fill gaps left by missing teeth. Traditional removable dentures and even fixed dentures using dental implants are designed for them based on their preferences and financial resources. We at Kamala Dental Specialty Hospital provide the most long-lasting and comfortable treatments to our elderly patients, leaving them feeling youthful and confident in their teeth and smiles, and thus exceeding their expectations on all levels.

Injured patients or those who are unable to visit our dental office can take advantage of our doctors’ house-visit / house-call services at no additional cost.

Advanced Dentures

The acrylic plastic denture base can be tinted to match the patient’s natural gum tissues. The prosthetic teeth that protrude from the base are intended to look and function exactly like your natural teeth.

Dentures, either complete or partial, can be used as a temporary means of tooth replacement until a permanent treatment option is found.

Wire clasps and/or other means of attachment to the remaining natural teeth hold partial removable dentures in place in the mouth. Other permanent replacement treatment options, such as bridges or dental implants, should be considered.

The suction cup effect and the patient’s-controlled use of their tongue and facial muscles keep complete removable dentures in place. Wearing dentures may take some time getting used to in terms of talking and eating at first, as the dentures become balanced in the space previously occupied by the teeth. As with any prosthetic device, learning to function with complete removable dentures can be difficult.

Dentures also help to support the facial skeleton as well as the soft tissues of the lips and cheeks, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Dental implants can also be used to help stabilize dentures, which can often improve a patient’s quality of life significantly.

Types Of Full Dentures

Immediate Dentures: These are usually a temporary solution to help you transition to successful denture wearing and avoid the toothless appearance during the healing period after extractions.

Conventional Full Dentures: These are permanent dentures that are customized to your mouth with near-perfect accuracy and meant for long-term usage.

Implant-Supported Overdentures: A lower or upper denture can be securely anchored using two or more dental implants to increase its stability. This option strikes an excellent balance of comfort, functionality, and value.

Types Of Partial Dentures

Transitional Partial Dentures

These low-cost removable plastic dentures act as a temporary tooth replacement and space maintainer while your mouth heals from tooth extraction, for example. Dental implants can be placed after the healing process is complete.

Cast Partial Dentures (CPDS)

These well-constructed metal-based removable partial dentures are much lighter and less obtrusive than plastic-based dentures. They cost slightly more than plastic dentures but fit better. However, they are far less expensive than implants or fixed bridgework.

BPS® (Biofunctional Prosthetic System)

BPS ® (Biofunctional Prosthetic System) is a professional expertise and quality product system that is the industry standard for aesthetics, comfort, fit, and function. BPS® precision dentures will give you confidence and optimal function while eating, speaking, or laughing.

The most important demand on your denture is to closely mimic the functions of natural teeth during mastication and speaking. Masticatory movements and the sensitivity of the oral mucous membranes, as well as wearing comfort during daily use, are taken into account.

BPS dentures can only be made by certified dental labs and technicians.

BPS dentures are made of carefully coordinated materials. The excellent collaboration between the BPS certified dentist and the BPS certified dental technician allows for the most accurate analysis of your personal data and its use in the fabrication of unique BPS dentures.

These are top-of-the-line precision dentures that provide optimal function while eating, speaking, or laughing.

Each BPS denture is handcrafted, beginning with teeth that are built in layers to mimic natural dentition. Specialized procedures, materials, and equipment are used from preliminary impressions to try-in to ensure a precise fit and to simulate correct jaw movement and function

The denture is then made using a patented injection moulding process, resulting in an accurate, secure, and comfortable fit. In fact, BPS dentures are made to such high standards that they have received ISO certification.

A BPS denture may be the answer if you want a denture that looks and feels like natural teeth.
