Oral Hygiene - Unconscious Individual - Canada

 

Ensuring good oral hygiene is particularly important for individuals that are unconscious. Since these individuals are not eating food or drinking liquids, may have an oxygen dependency, or may breathe with their mouth open, their mouths can become dry. Good oral hygiene is one of the key factors in keeping their mouth, gums, and teeth healthy and free from sores or infection. As a caregiver, you may be required to perform all oral hygiene tasks for these individuals, including cleaning their mouth, with extra care.
