Stroke Recovery | Dental Hygiene Home Care

Every 40 seconds someone in the US will have a stroke. 

Did you know that the loss of eight or more teeth in elderly stroke patients has been linked to poorer cognitive function?

Very few articles discuss dental hygiene home care with stroke recovery on popular stroke resource sites … 
although this is a vlog … my hope is that someone will ask their dental professional about this challenge.


Facial paralysis, difficulty swallowing and muscle weakness make dental hygiene at home a challenge when recovering from a stroke. This places one at risk for tooth decay, an active bacterial infection, gum disease, mouth ulcers, dry mouth, bad breath & contributes to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, etc. 

I have witnessed thousands of dollars in beautiful dentistry be destroyed by poor oral hygiene. Dentures, dental implants, crowns, crown & bridge, veneers, periodontal disease treatment and more … that have been eaten by bacteria until the rot of disease becomes painful or life threatening.
