MEDICAL CONDITIONS AND INCREASED HEALTH RISKS.
Certain medical conditions such as arthritis in the hands, Alzheimers or Dementia can make brushing teeth more cumbersome. Poor oral health has been linked with increased risk for heart attack, stroke, diabetes, and respiratory conditions. Healthy gums and teeth go a long way.
Seniors unable to get to the dental office as a result of hospitalization, recent release from the hospital, those who are bedridden due to illness or seniors with mobility impairment have greater needs when considering dental treatment.
MEDICATIONS HAVE MANY ORAL MANIFESTATIONS.
Many medications prescribed for controlling high blood pressure, osteoporosis, and diabetes have side effects that alter the flow of saliva, causing dry mouth. Lack of normal saliva leads to discomfort, tooth decay and tooth loss.
ROUTINE DENTAL CLEANINGS CAN PREVENT PNEUMONIA.
While brushing teeth at home is important, routine dental cleanings by a dental professional has been shown to reduce respiratory infections. A mobile dental specialist can provide in home dental cleanings at your convenience.
"While many seniors live independently, visiting a dental office is often very difficult."
Canadian Dental Association
"Many seniors suffer denture discomfort in silence due to embarrassment, or a reduced ability to communicate."
