Abstract

This is the second of two articles, which provide a guide to aid the clinical management of people living with dementia who present with periodontitis in dental practice. Guidance is provided to encourage optimal treatment planning and periodontal care for patients with dementia. Best practice in relation to UK statutory legislation, which governs the rights of those with impaired capacity, is also covered. Although the articles centre on periodontal care, much of the content is equally applicable to the wider general dental care for the dementia patient.
