Caregiver to a Disabled Adult Child? What You Should Know About Their Dental Health
If you're the primary caregiver of a mentally disabled adult child, you likely have so much on your plate that taking your child to the dentist for regular exams may fall to the bottom of the priority list. It can be especially hard to schedule and attend these appointments if your child fears the dentist and requires sedation or special handling just to get through a routine exam. In other cases, your financial resources may be nearly tapped out, and paying for dental treatment can be a hardship.
