Oral and dental health and oral and dental support of home patients--role of dental hygienist in the home service nursing station



Oral and dental health and oral and dental support of home patients--role of dental hygienist in the home service nursing station



Gan to Kagaku Ryoho. Cancer and ChemoTherapy 26(Suppl. 2): 305-308



Home patients have few chances for going out, so communication with their family means a lot. Talking and eating are particular pleasures. Therefore, oral and dental health and oral and dental support are very important for home patients. A dental hygienist from our clinic visits and offers oral and dental health (oral care) and oral and dental support (oral rehabilitation) to home patients as part of a care plan with home care nurses. Moreover, as general conditions are closely related with oral function, maintaining oral and dental health and regular oral and dental support are very important in order to improve the quality of life (QOL) of home patients.
