Additional Resources for Seniors on Oral Health

January 18, 2023

Older adults are often at risk for mild to severe oral health problems.  A new webpage by Caring.com not only lays out some of the common problems and symptoms that seniors experience with their oral health, but also provides some dental hygiene tips.

See the new webpage at Caring.com here.

Examples of problems that seniors may experience include:

- lack of access to care (something that safety net dental providers like Apple Tree Dental try to address)

- medical conditions that can affect the teeth and gums over time

- tooth loss (and the prevalence of older adults having a full set of dentures)

- much more.

Dental care for older adults and the frail elderly is essential health care, and that starts at home.
