DENTIST HOME VISIT

Did you know that certain dentists will come to you!

Domiciliary Dental Care -- At Home or in your Residential Care Home.

Domiciliary dental care is dental treatment that is provided in the patients home. Dental treatment is most easily provided in a dental surgery where all the equipment and materials are to hand and it is in the patients best interest to have dental treatment in the surgery, wherever possible.

Who would benefit from domiciliary dental care?

  • Patients who have severe mobility problems that make it very difficult for them to leave their home for treatment would benefit from domiciliary dental care. A dentist will visit your home and provide dental treatment.
  • Patients who are residents in a Care or Nursing Home.
What treatment can be provided at a dental domiciliary visit?

Scaling, simple fillings, simple extractions and the making of dentures can all be carried out using portable dental equipment. There are some treatments that cannot be provided in a domiciliary visit because they are more complex or the equipment needed is not transportable. These include x-rays, surgical extractions and crown and bridge work. If these are required they may have to be provided in the dental surgery.

Sometimes it may be the best option to choose a simpler treatment plan that does not include these items. In other cases it may be possible for a patient to have the more complex treatment in the dental surgery and the simpler work carried out on a domiciliary visit.
