Oral health has a huge impact on our quality of life. We learn from an early age to express ourselves by talking or smiling. The sound of our own voice would follow us from the moment of our birth and throughout life.  Our mouths are used constantly, we eat and drink and a variety of sounds leave our body via the mouth too. The state of our teeth and gums is either a source of pride or never ending struggle to maintain its healthy state.   These things are just as important for people are in care, so good oral health must not stop.

Oral health has a huge impact on our quality of life. We learn from an early age to express ourselves by talking or smiling. The sound of our voice would follow us from the moment of our birth and throughout life.  Our mouths are used constantly, we eat and drink and a variety of sounds leave our body via the mouth too.

Older people are now more likely to retain their teeth than previous generations, and they need daily care and regular check-ups. Good oral care helps keep people free from pain – especially important for those who have communication difficulties, who may find it difficult to alert others to where it hurts. For those with chronic conditions, good oral care can help make sure they can take the medicines they need to prolong health. Good oral health can also reduce the risk of malnutrition, which is thought to affect around 1.3 million older people. And it can reduce the risk of acquiring aspiration pneumonia, particularly in residential settings. These conditions can lead to people becoming frailer and can be fatal.
