Special Needs of Geriatric Patients
As a whole, the elderly visit the dentist less than any other age group. Partly because they do not see the need for treatment and also because they feel their situations may not be accommodated, the elderly tend to ignore their dental needs. At Princeton Prosthodontics, we hope to reverse that trend by meeting the special needs of geriatric patients with exceptional dental care and attention. To learn more about our dental care for the elderly, contact us today.
Cleft Palate & Lip
A cleft palate is a birth defect in which the roof of the mouth is not completely joined together. Another common birth defect related to cleft palate is cleft lip, an opening in the skin of the upper lip, sometimes extending to the base of the nose. Caused by genetic and environmental factors, cleft palate and lip can be fixed through reconstructive surgery. To learn more about cleft palate and lip treatment options, please contact Dr. Cortese and Princeton Prosthodontics today.
