Top Tips on Oral Care for People with Dementia
As people advance with dementia, they often become resistant to mouth care. Providing good oral care for residents that are uncooperative can be particularly challenging for carers, especially if they are aggressive.
However, good oral care is important to people’s overall health and wellbeing and fundamental to quality of life. Medical research has linked poor oral health to diabetes, strokes, heart disease, lung disease and dementia. Most oral diseases are largely preventable through the regular removal of plaque, it is therefore crucial to provide good daily oral care to safeguard the health and wellbeing of vulnerable older people.
