For many people, visiting the dentist is a relatively straightforward process. However, for those with limited mobility, getting to and from the dental chair can be a challenge. Fortunately, there are solutions that can make dental care more accessible for wheelchair users. When it comes to providing safe and ergonomic dental treatment for wheelchair patients, it is important for dental providers to move towards treating this often overlooked population.
By offering a safe and caring method of receiving treatment, wheelchair users can feel more confident in their ability to access dental care. One way to make the process easier is by using tiltable wheelchairs. This allows the patient to be adjusted at the touch of a button, providing relief and allowing the treatment to continue without interruption. This eliminates the need for constant readjustment of angles of inclination, which can disrupt treatment and cause frustration for both the patient and provider. By taking steps to make dental care more accessible for wheelchair users, providers can ensure that everyone has access to quality dental care.
With the right solutions in place, wheelchair users can feel comfortable and confident when visiting the dentist.
