Caring for an ageing parent
Helping an Ageing Parent to Brush Their Teeth

Caring for ageing parents can be challenging and can require many important decisions. Firstly, Denture and Oral Care should be high on the list of priorities, as neglecting the mouth can create many issues that make it difficult to eat, chew and speak. Secondly, Oral cancers can be lurking in the mouth going unnoticed and untreated. Finally, Poor Oral Health is also directly linked to stroke, diabetes, pneumonia, cardiovascular disease, and social issues like poor self-esteem.

Maintaining a proactive daily routine is something we do every day, but it becomes more difficult as we get older. An older person can forget to clean their teeth or lose the dexterity for self-care.

Whether your parent is at home, living alone or in a nursing home – You Can Help!

Dental Tech is Ireland’s Leading dental group specialising in Denture & Oral care for our ageing population. In addition to offering home and nursing home visits, we have also created Irelands only Online Oral Care Training Programme. This course has been created for nurses and carers in any residential facility, it is simple, intuitive, and valuable for any carer.

You will gain practical knowledge on;

  • What is oral health / poor oral health?
  • How to prepare for the daily oral care of an elderly person
  • Dry Mouth – causes & how to treat it
  • How to clean dentures

Beyond the general health reasons, maintaining the oral health of older adults is essential for function and to facilitate social interaction. These elements are crucial to ensure that our loved ones dignity is maintained towards the end of their lives.

Don’t underestimate the importance of maintaining and replacing dentures.
