Title:

Making the Mouth Matter: Tips on oral health for residents in the long-term care setting

Summary:

This educational session will discuss the importance of oral health in aging adults and the bi-directional relationship of oral disease on overall health. We will explore the oral status of older adults in the USA and Pennsylvania and discuss the barriers and facilitators to maintaining oral health and accessing oral health services for long-term care residents. Stage-appropriate care planning and dental interventions will be described. We will survey normal versus pathologic oral conditions in relation to the Minimal Data Set, Section L and discuss best practices in performing oral screenings. Examples of programs or initiatives that have made the mouth matter in long-term care settings will be highlighted.
