Has anyone any advice on keeping an AD sufferers teeth clean. Mum is quite advanced to the point that she can't do anything for herself. My father (82) is the full time carer and manages brilliantly, but has got to the stage where there is no cooperation from mum at all. Up until recently he managed to brush her teeth for her (more or less). Now she has no understanding of opening her mouth and it is impossible to get a brush in there. Her teeth are deteriorating and look terrible. I am worried she will be in pain from them and not be able to communicate it. How are teeth treated in advanced ad sufferers, anyone know??
