Why do I need my teeth cleaned professionally?

  • Living in a long term care facility means special attention when it comes to oral health care. 
  • Soft sugary diets and limited dexterity contribute to tooth decay and gum disease. 
  • Problems in the mouth can affect your overall health and wellness. Research indicates a direct link between oral health and illnesses such as cardiovascular (heart & stroke), lung disease and diabetes.
  • Bacteria from gum disease can find their way into the bloodstream, complicating existing medical conditions.
