Good dental health has officially been linked to having a better ability to manage Covid19.
A study at McGill University identified a strong link between periodontitis (a common form of gum disease) and severe Covid 19 outcomes. People with periodontitis were found to be 3.5 times more likely to require hospitalization, 4.5 times more likely to require a ventilator, and 8.8 times more likely to die from Covid 19.
Poor Dental Hygiene can Increase Risks in COVID-19,
As well as Increase Risk in Areas such as:
- Heart & stroke concerns
- Dry Mouth
- Other Chronic Conditions
Thank you very much!
I truly believe that my mom's teeth would not be in as good a condition as they are now without Karen's assistance.
Compassionate Dental Care! Always on the MOVE!
How does aging affect oral care?
- Oral health is a significant factor affecting senior’s quality of life, overall health, and wellbeing. Tooth loss, tooth decay, gum disease, dry mouth, and oral cancers are commonly experienced by older people.
- Often seniors lack the dexterity to brush their own teeth thoroughly.
- Dental hygienists visiting the home on a routine basis can significantly reduce bacteria forming on teeth called plaque.
- Plaque is bacteria that causes cavities, broken teeth, pain, and infections.
- Plaque inhaled when coughing can cause pneumonia.
- All of this affects eating, drinking, and overall wellbeing.
- If a higher level of care is required we can refer to a local dentist.
