Tips for Helping a Senior Care for Their Teeth


Posted on 5/10/2021 by Weo Admin
Tips for Helping a Senior Care for Their TeethMaintaining good oral hygiene is important at any stage of life. Helping our senior population care for their teeth is important. At the same time, this can feel like a daunting task for a number of reasons. We hope these tips help you to give the best care possible to those you love.

Tips for Caregivers


As much as you can, allow the senior to continue with their personal oral hygiene routine on their own. At the top of the list would be their daily brushing habits. If they are able to brush twice a day, encourage them to do so. If this task seems complicated, break it down for them. You could also brush with them and show them how to do it. Set a timer for two minutes and brush side by side. If you are not sure if they're brushing their teeth, you can feel the toothbrush after they're done to see if it is wet. If they are unable to brush their teeth, it is important to do that for them.

If they are receptive, it is a good idea to ask them to floss once a day as well. Again, this can be done together. Maybe floss the top teeth at a separate time from the bottom teeth if it is too overwhelming to do it all at once.

Also, is important that you change their toothbrush every three months and have them store the toothbrush vertically. This way the toothbrush will completely dry out between brushing times, and not accumulate bacteria.

Seniors are more prone to bone loss, sensitivities, and bleeding gums. Be gentle with them and encourage them to do the best they can with their daily oral hygiene routine. Give us a call to make sure your senior is up to date with their routine checkup and cleaning.
