As part of SCI’s vision to drive authentic conversations about quality-of-life for the elderly, we will publish posts throughout the year that focus on best-in-class organizations that are committed to a future of healthy and happy seniors.
In our third article on oral health, take a closer look at implant care and diseases and how people living with dementia can be supported in taking good care of their implants. We spoke with TePe Oral Hygiene Products AB to understand why maintaining your implants is just as important as keeping teeth and gums clean. We also collated information from various Alzheimer’s organizations to provide tips on helping people living with dementia follow good oral care practices.
In the event that you suspect inflammation or other symptoms of oral diseases, contact your dental professional for further advice and service.
