There are many seniors that suffer from arthritis or have other dexterity problems, making it difficult for them to brush and floss their teeth and maintain good dental care habits.  Here are some tips that may help:

1) Use a wide elastic band to attach the toothbrush handle to the hand.

2) Enlarge the toothbrush handle with a piece of wood or plastic.

3) Use an electric toothbrush.


4) Tie the ends of floss together, making a circle before flossing or use a floss holder.
