Geriatric Dentistry in Willoughby Hills, Ohio
Treating the dental needs of the elderly
Let’s face it, we are living longer. With advances in medicine and improvements in health care, the amount of elderly people in our country has risen drastically. These individuals suffer from dental problems common to their specific age group, including dry mouth, ill-fitting dentures and root caries, most of which were cultivated earlier in life.
Multiple medical complications such as dementia, diabetes, depression, Parkinson’s disease combined with loss of independence and lack of mobility create barriers to achieving optimal oral health. Dr. Fromm is critically aware of the need to treat this under-serviced portion of our population. We have the patience and take the time to develop treatment goals for each individual based upon their medical, dental AND financial situations. We love our elderly patients!
