In addition to providing toothbrushes to those in need, they also provide resources to not only educate, but to also spread awareness - especially to at-risk communities.
According to Toothbrush.org, one of the communities that face the hardest oral health challenges today is the older adult population.
In fact, studies reveal 1 in 5 older adults have untreated dental problems. In addition to the implications that come with poor oral health, research suggest ties between poor oral health and diabetes, stroke, heart disease and other serious health issues.
In order to raise awareness and educate those who are facing or who may face these problems, Toothbrush.org created this useful guide that outlines the importance of oral health and what the older adult population can do to ensure better oral health: https://www.toothbrush.org/ultimate-guide-oral-health-seniors
