Together, let’s bridge the gap between the needs of the dependent elderly population and their crucial oral health requirements!

Why S.O.S.?

Residents encounter challenges that hinder their ability to maintain optimal oral health:

  1. Dexterity Challenges:
    • Residents may lose the dexterity required for proper teeth cleaning.
  2. Limited Access to Traditional Dental Services:
    • Not all residents have access to traditional dental services.
  3. Reliance on Basic Daily Care:
    • Residents depend on us to provide fundamental daily care.

Common Oral Care Challenges:

Oral health is crucial, and residents face specific challenges:

  • Gum disease, tooth decay, broken teeth, mouth sores, and infections within teeth and bones can arise.
  • Infections in the mouth can spread throughout the body, leading to inflammation in various areas.
  • Studies link poor oral health to medical conditions such as diabetes, heart attacks, strokes, aspiration pneumonia, and Alzheimer’s.

At S.O.S., we provide practical tips and solutions to overcome these challenges, ensuring optimal oral health for your residents. Let’s work together to enhance the well-being of those under our care. Contact us to explore how S.O.S. can be your partner in promoting oral health for seniors in your community.
