Today’s elderly have access to some of the latest technological advancements when it comes to quality dental care. In fact, their care has improved so much that many still have their own teeth. Often, their good oral hygiene habits won’t change once they move into an assisted living, or other type, of long-term care facility. However, paying for seniors dental services can be problematic in case of long-term care. But there are solutions available that provide affordable dental care.

Dental Services in Long Term Care Facilities

  • Preventative Care
    Individuals who still have their natural teeth require regular, affordable, dental care that is preventative in nature. Annual cleanings can help prevent decay and eventual tooth loss. It also shows the dentist where problem areas are so the patient can take action to prevent deterioration in the future.
  • Emergency Dental Care
    While assisted living facilities cannot deny emergency dental treatment if it’s required, the amount of money spent by Medicare is often not enough to cover procedures that need to be performed. Even supplemental insurance policies may not cover the entire expense. A supplemental policy may cover a portion of the bill, but the rest will have to be paid by the patient.
  • Incurred Medical Expense
    An incurred medical expense, or IME, is a solution that allows for a portion of the patient’s retirement benefits to be used for dental procedures and care that may not otherwise be available to them. A small percentage of their benefits can be used to make regular payments for procedures that will allow the patient to maintain their natural teeth for as long as possible.
  • Preventative dental care is cost-effective for many patients in long-term care. With affordable dental care, they can retain their natural teeth for many more years, without having to worry about expensive repairs to dentures, bridges or other types of dental work.
