Studies have clearly established a link between oral health and overall well-being. This is important to know for people of all ages, especially for seniors. As we age we become more susceptible to various oral and dental problems, and maintaining appropriate hygiene practices like regular brushing and flossing is a crucial component to staying healthy.
However many seniors tend to defer their oral health care need. However, this makes it all the more important to continue to encourage this population to take the time to take care of themselves and their oral health.
