Oral Health and Ageing

Importance of oral health in old age

A Link is claimed between oral health and frailty in old age.

This link was recently  highlighted in the Journal of Gerondontology which published the research findings.

Poor dental health and hygiene can lead to decay and pain and thus an inability to eat a properly balanced diet.

This can have detrimental long term health consequences and accelerate frailty in the elderly.
