All over Los Angeles County, nursing homes do an amazing job at caring for our aging moms, dads, grandmas, and grandpas after medical conditions or special needs make living at home no longer safe or possible. Nursing home dental care, however, often isn’t a service your typical skilled nursing center is able to provide. If you have a loved one living in a local nursing home, you may want to consider working with Dr. Banner of In Motion Dentists to visit your relative at his or her nursing home for regular dental care or treatment for specific conditions such as diagnosing toothaches or assistance with replacing dentures or partial dentures.
How We Work
Dr. Banner of In Motion Dentists is a mobile dentist with portable dental equipment. You can often find him on Los Angeles freeways heading to nursing homes to provide nursing home dental care to patients from all backgrounds. Our bottom line is that we provide thorough, caring dental care to people with special needs at the location that’s most convenient for them, and often, this setting is inside a nursing home.
A Typical Dental Treatment with Dr. Banner
When you choose to have Dr. Banner treat your loved one, he brings a portable dentist’s office to the Los Angeles County nursing home for nursing home dental care. Once he arrives, he carefully sets up a workspace – including a dental chair – so he can properly care for your relative. If your loved one has a fear of the dentist or of any of the portable dental equipment that Dr. Banner typically brings, he works carefully and diligently to provide the best level of dental care while also keeping mom, dad, grandma or grandpa feeling as safe and as comfortable as possible.
Services We Offer
Dr. Banner knows that Los Angeles County seniors who require nursing home dental care often need a wide variety of treatments. The caregivers and relatives with whom our office coordinates are often surprised at the number and types of treatments Dr. Banner is able to offer as a mobile dentist. Some common treatments we provide in nursing care settings include:
- Emergency services
- Regular cleanings
- Partial dentures
- Oral sedation
- Comprehensive exams
- Deep cleanings
- Root canals
- Digital X-rays
- White fillings
- Tooth extractions
Dr. Banner takes every effort at providing nursing home dental care right in your loved one’s room so that you don’t have to coordinate transporting him or her to a dental office for treatment, which may not be possible for all nursing home patients.
Call Us With Any Questions
We know that the decision to have your loved one move into a Los Angeles County nursing home is never easy for families who wish they could provide the care their loved one needs in their own home. Whether work obligations prevent you from providing round-the-clock care, or your loved one has specialized medical needs that can’t be treated in a home setting, Dr. Banner knows from personal experience that nursing homes are full of some of the most loving and caring professional caregivers there are.
In efforts to provide holistic care to your loved one, Dr. Banner recommends you provide nursing home dental care to your relative at least every six months for regular check-ups, and intermittently as dental issues may arise. If you have any questions about how our services are provided, we’d love to answer your questions. Call our team today at (626) 594-0374.
