Oral Health

Year: 2016
As patients living with Machado-Joseph Disease (MJD) become progressively less capable of self-care and other care needs take priority for carers, oral hygiene can often be neglected as it may not appear to require high prioritisation at first glance. However, the maintenance of good oral hygiene is fundamental for patients affected by neurological disease. This medical protocol outlines some of the common symptoms related to oral hygiene, experienced by people living with MJD, as well as associated treatment strategies.
