Create a plan for maintaining your loved one's dental health


What You Should Know

As we age, our flexibility, coordination and strength decline. This can make flossing and brushing difficult. But no matter the challenges (or how few teeth remain), dental care remains very important. Oral problems can spread throughout the body, even resulting in heart disease and pneumonia. Ask your loved one’s dentist for suggestions to make daily dental care easier. Also, make sure your loved one's diet is suitable for any existing dental conditions.

Steps To Take

  • Make sure your loved one gets regular dental care, including checkups and tooth cleaning.
  • If flossing or brushing are too hard, ask the dentist about new tools patients can use.
