S0 always had impeccable teeth, flossing and brushed after every meal so it took me a few years to notice he had stopped taking care of his teeth, even after his diagnosis of dementia. When his front tooth snapped off and I brought him to a local dental chain I discovered the extent. He needed $8,000 worth of work and probably dentures. The first step was to remove the tooth still left in the gum that had snapped off but when we returned for the procedure he refused to let them do it. He said he didn't trust them. I brought him to other dentists but the only one he liked actually told me he just couldn't deal with him. He is very suspicious and makes any professional explain over and over what and why which can go on for quite a time. Plus he now refuses to clean his teeth anyway and instead insists that someone else did this to him. Someone comes in during the night and injures his teeth. He tells me I have to make them stop. So at this point I don't know what or where to go. He has limited dental insurance so anything he did I would need to pay and have him slowly pay me back. But I don't have anywhere to take him or any assurance he will actually sit for the many procedures. Yet his teeth are hurting him and it's getting hard for him to chew.
