Dysphagia is a condition characterized by difficulty in swallowing and it usually occurs due to neurological conditions such as depression, dementia and stroke. People with this condition have a greater likelihood of developing pneumonia, therefore additional modifications as well as support is needed during dental care routines.
Symptoms of Dysphagia include:
Brushing and flossing your teeth properly would be the basic steps towards keeping your teeth clean and maintaining a good oral hygiene. But one of the most important things to consult a specially trained dentist at Brighton Implant Clinic.
If you wear dentures, they should be cleaned every day as dysphagia patients can easily inhale bacteria left on the denture.
