Geriatric dentistry

Geriatric dentistry

Geriatric dentistry or geriodontics is the delivery of dental care to older adults involving the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of problems associated with normal aging and age-related diseases

Advantages

  • Maintaining good oral hygiene is a powerful weapon against heart attacks, strokes and other heart disease conditions
  • Poor oral health has been linked to pneumonia in older adults. By breathing in bacterial droplets from the mouth to the lungs, seniors are more susceptible to the condition; and good oral hygiene is a good way to combat this bacteria. Good oral health care is particularly important in nursing homes and in cargiving situations, where many residents are unable to care for their teeth, having to rely on staff and caregivers
