Hospice dentistry which is also known as palliative care dentistry, is the management of dental patients who have active and advanced diseases in their oral cavity caused by a compromise of the disease or due to its treatment. The palliative team has a lot of functions to carry out for the patient. They are in charge of pain control, psychological wellness, social and spiritual areas as well. The Hospice Dentistry solution offered by Dentulu ensures that the hospice team serves its purpose of improving the quality of life of the patient. This means that all the necessary tools needed to see this result are provided in our mobile dentistry solution itself. The team makes sure that the patient experiences an affluent life as opposed to a strenuous treatment or cure.
There are also areas in which hospice dentistry or palliative dental care can help including typical side effects during cancer treatments such as dry mouth, severe tooth decay, candidiasis, oral thrush, and inflammations.
Another area in which hospice dentistry plays a crucial role is when a patient is experiencing a terminal phase of life. Pain has been attributed as the most common criteria for palliative care. Other symptoms to check-out include loss of appetite, bed-bound, trouble swallowing, weight loss, profound weakness, and many more. Dentulu offers a robust, in-depth, and comprehensive solution when dealing with hospice patients. Our solution also makes it easy for such patients to gain access to mobile dentistry through our “uber-like” platform. Our hospice Dentistry solution is characterized by certain features.
