my dad is in a care home, and has become very aggressive over the last year or so, especially around personal care. He hits, kicks, spits, screams - he is extremely strong and can really hurt those around him. Unfortunately, he lost his dentures mid December (whole left side of his top palate), and we’ve decided to try and get some new ones for him. The mould from his precious set are not available to use, so we need to start again. If he becomes very violent at the dentist, we will of course stop - he’ll have to do without dentures. But i’m Concerned about the impact on his speech and eating (he is already on a weight plan due to weight loss). I will be taking him to the dentist tomorrow, along with a carer from the home to support me. Does anyone have any tips on how to make this visit as easy as possible for him ? i’m Going to put classical music on the car radio (he loved classical music), and will be constantly reassuring him and talking to him. The GP has also prescribed diazepam for this visit. I don’t know what the dentures process will entail, but am presuming they’ll need to put something in his mouth - am very worried that he will become violent.
