Seniors and Their Oral Hygiene Care
Plaque can build up on seniors teeth very quickly, because of that seniors need to maintain good oral hygiene habits. Daily brushing and flossing is very important in reducing plaque build up. Since seniors have a higher risk of gum disease, making sure plaque does not build up is essential in oral health care. It is important for all individual regardless of age to have regularly dental check ups at least twice a year though for some seniors a dentist may advise more then twice a year checkups if necessary.
