Description

Poor oral hygiene and dental disease may be more prevalent in patients with disabilities due to the effects of their condition and medication on the oral environment. Malocclusion and/or teeth with developmental defects, oral habits such as pouching of food, and even poor physical coordination contribute to poor oral hygiene. Some patients cannot grasp a toothbrush or reach their mouth; their lack of ability for self–care may have serious health implications. Assessment and education skills are essential to develop a home care routine that patients and/or caregivers can follow to help prevent disease and maintain oral health. A daily preventive program must be effective, simple to use, and low in cost. This course provides dental professionals with information to help the patient with special needs and the caregiver attain the appropriate knowledge to treat and maintain good oral health.
