Bad oral hygiene can hurt elders' well-being
from My Dayton Daily News
When working at a skilled nursing facility, one of the biggest frustrations voiced by families and residents was the lack of staff diligence in assisting with oral hygiene. We really tried to improve our care when we learned that these concerns were justified as poor oral hygiene could significantly negatively impact one’s health. For example, a fact sheet from the Washington Dental Service Foundation noted that neglecting one’s teeth could contribute to severe gum disease.
