TYPE: House Call
SPECIAL NEED: Non-ambulatory
MEDICAL HISTORY: Back surgery, hypotension
CHIEF COMPLAINT: Mobile teeth causing discomfort
MAINTENANCE CARE: Annual House Call Exam
BACKGROUND: John’s wife called because his loose teeth were bothering him. His last dental visit was 20 years ago and his oral condition reportedly declined after he had spinal surgery and pneumonia. All of John’s remaining teeth were very mobile due to advanced periodontal disease. Four house call visits later, John had a new maxillary denture and, at a follow up visit, reported he ate steak the night before.

Extractions #6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 27
Complete Maxillary denture
TREATMENT DETAILS: The initial exam and extractions were performed on the same day. Three more house call visits were necessary to complete the upper denture. John will continue his treatment as the need arises.
