Many of us take for granted our freedom and mobility when it comes to leaving the house to run any number of errands on a daily basis. We are fortunate enough to not even think twice before making an appointment with our hairstylist or doctor or dentist. Hopping in the car and heading to a meeting or appointment is a common and effortless activity for most of us. Unfortunately for many people who are homebound, however, getting help with needs such as dental care is very difficult or even impossible since they are unable to leave their home. This often leads to neglect of their health since seeking help is very complicated or unfeasible due to an inability to travel.
If you or a loved one cannot leave your home due to a physical condition and are in need of dental care, there is a dental practice that can help you: Bright Side Dental. Bright Side Dental makes house calls! The dentists at Bright Side Dental have the ability to bring their state of the art and completely mobile equipment to you or a loved one who is unable to travel to one of their five metro Detroit locations.
Bright Side Dental realizes that bringing care to homebound individuals is very important and also understands “how important it is to have access to dental services when homebound and visiting your local dentist is no longer an option.” You can visit www.BrightSideDental.com to learn about the practice and its dentists.
Bright Side Dental works hard to make many dental services available to its home care patients, including:
- Oral Cancer Screenings
- Dentures and Partials
It’s quite exciting that Bright Side Dental can offer all of these services, and more, through home care for homebound patients. Patients can have full dentures made for them without ever leaving their home. Dentures can be such a revolutionary help for people with missing teeth who struggle to eat and speak comfortably. Partial dentures are used for people who have lost several teeth but still have many of their own healthy teeth. Partial dentures fit snugly between your natural teeth to give your mouth a full and functional smile.
If you or a loved one is homebound, you may think it is ok to go without dental cleanings by a professional if you take good care of your teeth on your own at home. The truth is that we cannot clean our teeth as efficiently or effectively as a dental hygienist or dentist. Tartar cannot be removed by a toothbrush, professional tools are needed. If tartar is left on the teeth, gum disease can develop. If gum disease is left untreated, it can become severe enough to cause bone and tooth loss. We need to visit our dentist at least every six months for a cleaning and if a health or physical condition makes it impossible for you to get to your dentist, have your dentist come to you! Call Bright Side Dental at (586) 229-1916 today to learn how home dental care could benefit you or a loved one.
