San Francisco Geriatric Dentistry

San Francisco Geriatric Dentistry

Our dental care and treatment plans pay special attention to senior-specific concerns like:

  • Changes to the structure of oral mucosa, gums and supporting bone surrounding our teeth.
  • Xerostomia, or “dry-mouth” (often a side-effect of medications).
  • Denture and implant options.
  • The risk of infection traveling from the mouth to hip and joint sites.
  • The link between periodontal disease and heart, respiratory, and stroke dangers

Itani Dental coordinates with Case managers, Caregivers, and Senior Care facilities to provide services that meet the needs of the senior populations. Our services are specifically designed to accommodate patients dealing with Immobility, Dementia, and Phobias by providing the following services:

  • Mobile dental screening for groups (Senior Centers, Churches, Residential Centers).
  • Our Dentistry to Your Door program, a traveling (home care) dental health service, is one of the only programs in Northern California of its kind, delivering treatment to your home, residential group home, or assisted living facility. We maintain mobile equipment and techniques designed to provide this service
  • The most appropriate course of sedation for our senior adults and special needs patients, as well as for emergencies they may experience.
  • Personalized assessments and coordination with case managers, caregivers, and senior care facilities.
