Oral health for adults in care homes

NHS Evidence - health management - Wed, 06/07/2016 - 09:51

National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) - 
More than half of older adults in care homes have tooth decay compared to 40 per cent of over 75s and 33 per cent of over 85s who do not live in care homes. This guidance calls for oral health and access to dental treatments to be given the same priority as general health for all adults in care homes. Recommendations in the guidance focus on improving and maintaining residents’ day-to-day oral healthcare, ensuring staff are properly trained to confidently look after the oral health needs of residents, and there is adequate access to dental services when needed. It also recommends all residents have an oral health assessment when they enter a care home with the results - including any treatment needs - being entered into their personal care plan.
