As seniors grow older, they are told to take care of themselves. Yes, a senior should take care of their mental and physical health, but they should also care for their oral health. Visiting Angels Punta Gorda breaks down how seniors can care for their oral health. 

There are a couple of well-known oral health tips that people are aware of. For instance, a person should try their best to floss every day. Why is flossing important? Because flossing can help remove the plaque that builds up between a person’s teeth. Additionally, a senior should brush their teeth twice a day. When choosing a toothbrush, it is important to choose a soft bristled toothbrush. A hard bristle brush can damage a senior’s gums and teeth.
