I am Rick Ferrante from Home Care Services and today we are visiting the dental practice of Doctor Dan Iannotti and Doctor Alexis Moore talking about dental health and in particular dental care for seniors.
For family’s caring for a senior in their home, as well as for professional or other caregivers dental care is a significant issue that needs to be factored in as part of the overall care continuum. The caregivers and staff at Home Care Services can be a great resource for those who need assistance in finding care for your home.
Home Care Services has produced this video to provide information to the General Santa Clarita community and in particular to those who have an elder at home that needs assistance. Because dental care can be different for a senior than for those of the general population extra attention needs to be paid to the dental history as well as symptoms.

Good dental health is a quality of life issue in addition to something that can be medically dangerous. Proper attention to changes in the dental area is important and regular professional care is critical to the quality of life. We asked Doctor Dan Iannotti about some of the differences in dental care when it comes to seniors as opposed to those of the general population.
As we age we are taking more medication, and one of the side effects of these medications can be dry mouth. And when you have dry mouth you have a higher risk for dental decay.
Especially as we age and the risk of gingivitis recession, gum recession, and periodontal disease there is more rich surfaced exposed and with dry mouth that can be a recipe for decay. So was a results, sometimes I will see older patients with a lot of root decay which can be very challenging to restore because the root surface is not protected by the enamel layer which is the hardest surface on an actual body. So we have a challenge at times to restore those patients.
Doctor Dan Iannotti DDS is located at 25880 Tournament Road, Suite 106 in Valencia.
