Dental care for older people is as important as for younger adults. Keeping our permanent teeth further into life means there is a greater need for daily support, dental treatment and restorative work, as well as more care for unrestored teeth.
Elderly people who are suffering with poor oral health could be in pain and discomfort and experience problems with their mouth and jaw. They might also have difficulties in eating and drinking which could lead to nutritional deficiencies and then bring negative impacts to their health. Thus, it is very important to support and maintain good oral health among the elderlies.
