I had a call from my dad's dentist today. They have told me in the past that he has a lot of decay and infection in his mouth and that they should pull his teeth and get him dentures. Today he had the caregiver take him to the dentist because his gums bleed. They told him again that he absolutely needs to have all of his teeth pulled. They are concerned about sepsis. He also has a top and bottom plate but I know teeth keep falling out so those don't always stay in. I'm really not sure at this point if he is maintaining his teeth that well although he says he brushes every day and I have never noticed any kind of odor from his mouth. We have a consult appointment in a couple weeks and I would assume we would meet with an oral surgeon at some point also. I am his guardian so I feel like I should make him do what's best but then I can't force him into having his teeth pulled either.
