Survey Finds That Dental Health Is Important To Older Adults, But There Are Gaps In Care

June 18, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
A survey conducted among adults aged 50 and older found that though dental health ranks among the top three medical concerns, fewer than half floss daily and about a third brush their teeth only once a day. Conducted by P&G brands Crest and Oral-B and the AARP, the survey found that 75 percent said dental health care is “very important”. Seventy-four percent said they visited a dentist or dental professional for treatment at least twice a year. But many older adults still do not maintain a full oral care routine: 60 percent do not use mouthwash daily, 47 percent do not floss daily, and 34 percent only brush once a day.
