Hygiene problems with dental prostheses and dental appliances are causing the development of several diseases triggered by pathogenic micro-organisms building up into prostheses and appliances. Over 500 species of micro-organisms have been identified in the oral cavity (mouth).
Bacteria, fungi and viruses that stick to dental prostheses and appliances worsen the numerous diseases resulting from this contamination :
* A growing number of seniors receiving long-term care suffer from poor oral hygiene (National Advisory Council on Aging).
Furthermore, the use of certain medications increases the risk of unbalancing the normal bacterial flora of the oral cavity, and creates an additional risk factor for seniors.
Dental hygiene is therefore an essential factor when it comes to the oral health of people wearing dental prostheses or dental appliances. It helps prevent the aggravation of health problems these people could suffer from. The use of a dental prosthesis cleanser becomes a determining factor in prevention.
