It can be difficult to watch your parent age, but when the aging process takes its toll in unrelenting ways, it can be downright painful to see. If you find yourself in a new role as caretaker for your aging parent, you may find that you are having to make more and more decisions for them. Especially their oral health. Geriatric dental issues can range from cavities to dry mouth to gum disease. If your aging parent is vulnerable and unable to get to a dentist office, the issues can become dangerous.
Finding dental care for aging parents can be a daunting task. If you add dementia or Alzheimer’s into the mix, geriatric oral care can be absolutely dreadful.
