I just noticed some black spots on a few of my dad’s teeth near the gum line. I’m guessing this is from years of not going to see a dentist.
I feel awful that I didn’t see them before. I’ve been in charge of his care since February. Luckily he isn’t in any pain.
I’m looking for advice or info on how he can get dental care while in a wheelchair. He needs a two person assist to get in the dentist chair and the staff at the dentist office can’t help me move him. I can’t pick him up on my own. Anyone else ever dealt with this? Wondering if they could clean his teeth in his wheelchair chair or do I need to scramble to find someone to come help me lift him?
Also any advice on cavities and dental work for someone with advanced Alzheimer’s is helpful too.
