I'm after practical tips for dental care: sadly, 'Personal Care' is a thing of the past. My husband can rarely be pursuaded to brush his teeth now, and doesn't co-operate when I try and do it for him (hardly surprising .....). I asked the dentist this week what I could do, he suggested a Listerine mouthwash, and reassured me that it would not do any harm if my husband swallowed it. Have you ever tried it???? It almost blows your head off - no chance of getting that past my loved one, and in my naive optimism I bought a big bottle of the stuff! Might use it to clear the drains. Seriously: does anyone have any tips? Neither tooth decay nor gum disease are things we could easily deal with now, since my husband is unable to follow anything but the most basic instructions, and a visit to the dentist or hygienist is not possible as he cannot get into the car. Thanks in advance!
