Nursing Home Patients Are Having Up To 20 Teeth Extracted Due To a High Sugar Diet and Lack of Dental Care!

A recent article from the Irish Dental Association has said that patients who reside in a nursing home are having up to 20 teeth extracted due to a high sugar diet and lack of dental care.

Gifting sweets and sugary drinks to the patients along with having a diet high in sugary foods is causing untold damage to the oral health of thousands.

Many of these patients are taking medications which can cause dry mouth, this also accelerates dental decay.

A low sugar message should be sent out to all healthcare professionals and appropriate oral health training programs should be made mandatory.

Where possible, family members of the patients should bring them into the dental clinic for regular check ups and cleanings.
