Essential Tips of Care for Seniors' Oral Health

Care for seniors’ oral health is crucial for maintaining overall well-being and quality of life. Here are some essential tips to help seniors maintain optimal oral health:
  • Maintain a Consistent Oral Hygiene Routine: Brush your teeth at least twice a day using a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Clean between your teeth daily using dental floss or interdental cleaners to remove plaque and food particles.
    • Pay Attention to Denture Care: If you wear dentures, clean them daily using a denture brush and mild denture cleaner. Remove and rinse dentures after eating to eliminate any food debris. Also, make sure to clean your gums and any remaining teeth properly.
    • Stay Hydrated: Seniors may be prone to dry mouth due to certain medications or medical conditions. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day. If needed, consult your dentist for recommendations on saliva substitutes or moisturizing mouth sprays to alleviate dry mouth symptoms.
    • Visit Your Dentist Regularly: Regular dental checkups are vital for seniors. Schedule routine dental visits at least twice a year or as recommended by your dentist. These visits allow your dentist to monitor your oral health, address any concerns promptly, and perform professional cleanings.
