How Often Is Mouth Care Provided?

The key objective of oral care is to reduce dental plaque and oropharyngeal microbes, with the aspiration of minimizing contaminated saliva. Another benefit of good dental hygiene is that it might help to improve patient comfort and avoid halitosis. 

Furthermore, oral care is essential for critically ill patients in intensive care (ICU). Poor oral hygiene may affect intensive care patients' clinical outcomes and well-being. 


How Can Adults Preserve Good Oral Health? 

As long as you take care of your teeth, you can keep them throughout your life. The following information can help you keep your teeth and gums in good shape. 

  • Use fluoride toothpaste and fluoridated water to keep your teeth and gums healthy. 
  • Maintain a healthy mouth with brushing and flossing. Brush your teeth twice a day and floss once daily to remove plaque between the teeth. 
  • Even if you have dentures or don't have any natural teeth, you should see your dentist at least once a year. 
  • Tobacco products should not be used at all. Stop smoking if you're one. 
  • Limit your alcohol intake. 
  • If you have diabetes, make a concerted effort to keep it under control. Other problems, like gum disease, will be less likely.  
  • Ask your doctor for a different prescription if your current one causes dry mouth. To combat dry mouth - drink plenty of water, chew sugarless gum, and steer clear of tobacco and alcoholic beverages if you can. 
  • If your sense of taste or smell suddenly shifts, make an appointment with your physician or dentist. 
  • Get help for older people to brush and floss if they can't do it independently. 


How Frequently Should Mouth Care Be Performed? 

Dental care is required twice daily for patients with healthy teeth, three times daily for patients with poor teeth, and every four hours for patients with unhealthy teeth.
