Tooth whitening may improve oral health of elderly
A tooth-bleaching agent may improve the oral health of elderly and special needs patients. That's according to U.S. dentists who have discovered that applying the tooth whitener carbamide peroxide through a custom-fit mouth tray might combat problems associated with dexterity needed for flossing and brushing, as well as and dry mouth caused by certain medication. Dental experts at the Medical College of Georgia and Western University of Health Sciences suggest that standard oral hygiene can be difficult or impossible for patients with mental challenges or impaired manual dexterity.
