My son goes through spells where he won’t brush his teeth - just like he won’t shower, changes his clothes, etc. during those times.
He has a lot of dental work that needs to be done. We have a great dentist, but she doesn’t want to do that much work on him because he starts to tremble when he’s in the chair and she said it’s just too hard on him.
He went to a sedation dentist a year or so ago and did one visit that took care of 1/3 of what he needed. They couldn’t have been nicer to him, but he “heard” the dentist say a couple things I’m sure he didn’t say, so I we haven’t been back - and he’s not exactly stable right now.
How do you guys handle dental care? And, I know that dental problems, especially infections, can affect your overall health. Some surgeons won’t work on you now if you have any known dental issues. That makes me think back to the member here who has a sister and the minocyclene (antibiotic) helped her a lot.
I’m wondering if my son might have an absess or something that’s making his current episode so hard to treat. I know I’m grabbing at straws - but that’s all I have to hold onto these days. I’ve also been reading about other infections - especially the ones related to cats since we’ve almost always had at least one - along with lots of other animals.
