Together with the Huntington´s Disease Association of Cyprus and Annette Carlsson, we’re running a webinar on how to maintain a healthy mouth and strong teeth in people with Huntington’s disease.

During the webinar we will discuss how to manage oral health and demonstrate several tools that will make oral care easier in daily life. It is free of charge and open to everyone (both professionals and family members/carers).

Background:

One of the corner stones for Quality of Life is good oral health. For people with Huntington’s there are many problems that affects the oral health. Dry mouth as well as blisters and sores can cause pain and difficulties in eating, speaking and to perform oral care.  Toothache and lack of teeth affects even the mental status. Swallowing difficulties increase the risk of aspiration. It is of extra importance to maintain a good oral health and thereby minimize the risk of injurious bacteria reaching the lungs.
