The Mouth is the Gateway to the Body
Unlike years ago, 50-75% of all nursing home residents today keep their own teeth into their senior years. A study conducted by the American Academy of Periodontology concluded, “people with gum disease are at double the risk of developing cardiac disease and stroke in comparison to those with healthy gums.”
Furthermore, long-term care facilities often lack the time or resources needed to provide adequate oral hygiene. According to the U.S. Surgeon General, 70% of long-term care residents are not provided with acceptable dental care.
Senior Dental Services is dedicated to providing a solution to the lack of oral hygiene care and improving the quality of life for LTC residents.
