Proper dental evaluations and hygiene are vital aspects of caring for an elderly client. Neglecting signs of oral health puts patients at risk for heart disease as well as more common problems like halitosis and bad breath, which can be embarrassing and could cause social and psychological problems. This program discusses specific conditions and diseases of the mouth, provides nursing and health care assistants with the procedures necessary for completing an oral exam, and presents ways to take action against oral problems. Viewers will learn how to recognize and manage a wide range of dental issues, including sores, dry mouth, problematic dentures, and oral cancer.
