Dental hygiene in seniors should be prioritized to avoid bacteria, damage, and the likelihood of developing halitosis. As part of our home healthcare services, we take care of your dental health.
No Place Like Home Health Care LLC, your caregivers in Chino Hills, California, would like to share some ways for seniors to keep up with dental hygiene.
- Brush your teeth at least three times a day.
Brushing teeth with a toothbrush with nice bristles and fluoride toothpaste is the primary way to preserve dental health. Electric ones remove plaque build-up better than traditional ones. If you need help, our caregivers can provide you with personal care services.
- Floss at least once a day.
This is another critical step not everyone knows. Flossing will remove residues between your teeth to reduce plaque, prevent bad breath, and reduce the risk of cavities. If you have trouble doing it properly, our caregivers are here to offer caring companionship and assistance.
Mouthwash can prevent dry mouth, gum disease, and the growth of bacteria.
- Clean your dentures.
Wash your dentures before and after use. You can soak it in a cleaning solution at night to kill bacteria and prevent brittleness.
We are providers of elderly care that will ensure that your senior loved ones’ personal care and dental hygiene needs are well-taken care of and met.
