About Oral Disability Rescue
At least 1.3 million American nursing home residents face the greatest barriers to accessing dental care and suffer in silence as their oral health and dental needs are being neglected. Unfortunately, oral diseases are underestimated, ignored, or not detected until far too late, resulting in increased morbidity and/or mortality. Several studies have reported that, poor oral hygiene, inadequate denture stabilization, and many other dental/oral problems could result in medical problems associated with systemic and chronic diseases, such as oral cancer, cardiovascular disease, respiratory infections, diabetic complications, malnutrition, depression, and dementia. All older adults deserve to have access to adequate dental prevention and care. We urgently need your help in order to start helping older adults in your community.
