More and more, oral health care is playing a greater role in maintaining our aging population.  It has become vital to older patients as it relates to their overall global health. While effective preventive measures exist for younger populations (water fluoridation, dental sealants and parents), no preventive measures have been devised to address the expected increase in oral health needs of the aging population.  Given the issue, yours or your parent’s oral care may need a prosthodontist and her team.

Oral health conditions affected 3.9 billion people last year, and untreated caries in permanent teeth was the most prevalent condition evaluated for the entire Global Burden of Disease Study (global prevalence of 35% for all ages combined).[1] Oral conditions combined accounted for 15 million disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs) globally, implying an average health loss of 224 years per 100,000 population.[2]

DALYs due to oral conditions increased 20.8% between 1990 and 2010, mainly due to population growth and aging.[3]  In 2015, the US population increased to 320 million (3.08 million in 2010) and 14.7% of the population will be aged 65 years or older.

Our Right Smile team has taken a leadership role in the delivery of health care services to the seniors who deserve to be treated with the best oral health care we have to offer.  Dental Insider ranks our practice as the only “10” out of 10 in the Sandy Springs area.

In our offices, Dr. Scheinfeld is the prosthodontist specializing in geriatric care.

Sandy Springs Dental: The future of Implant Dentistry is here now.

Sandy Springs Chamblee dentists near meDental implants are stronger and more durable than bridges, partials and dentures.  And from an esthetic standpoint, they look and feel natural.  Implants offer you a permanent solution to tooth and continued bone loss.   Additionally, implants may be used in conjunction with other restorative procedures for maximum effectiveness in that a single implant may serve to support a dental crown replacing a single missing tooth.  Implants can also be used to support a dental bridge for the replacement of multiple missing teeth, and can be used with complete dentures, which increase stability and preserve bone structure.

Modern advancements mean that a larger population than ever before are finding themselves candidates for dental implants.  While the application and candidacy for implantation varies on a case by case basis, your dentist needs to determine the viability of implants as it applies to your actual bone structure.   Keep in mind, prosthodontists are the ADA sanctioned specialists who have received post-doctorate training are most often your best bet for the successful completion of this type of technique sensitive procedure.  If our team of implantologists can ever be of help please don’t hesitate to call or contact us so we can answer your questions.

Geriatric Dentistry | Dentist Sandy Springs

  • Aging Patients
    Aging Patients need special care.

    Although better than in years past, the typical aging patient’s baseline health state can be complicated by comorbid conditions (e.g., hypertension, diabetes mellitus) and physiologic changes associated with aging.

 

  • Older adults may regularly use several prescription and/or over-the-counter medications, making them vulnerable to medication errors, drug interactions or adverse drug reactions. We take special attention to an aging patient’s medication.  We have both in-house and out of practice pharmacological expertise we rely on.

 

  • Potential physical, sensory, and cognitive impairments associated with aging may make oral health self-care and patient education/communications challenging.

 

  • Dental conditions associated with aging include dry mouth (xerostomia), root and coronal caries, and periodontitis; patients may show increased sensitivity to drugs used in dentistry, including local anesthetics and analgesic.

 

Our Sandy Springs team has the experience and expertise to handle yours or your family’s geriatric oral health needs.
