Mouth care Teaching 576

Patient was instructed on oral hygiene tips for seniors. Daily brushing and flossing of the natural teeth is essential to keep them in good health. Plaque can build up quickly on the teeth of older adults, especially if oral hygiene is neglected, and lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Brush at least twice a day with fluoride containing toothpaste. Floss at least once a day. Visit the dentist regularly for cleaning and examination.
