Hello helpline team
This is possibly an unusual request, but i was just wondering if you knew of any resources whereby people struggling with their manual dexterity could buy dental aids? because i have arthritis my final year project at uni is going to be on the increased likelihood of people with arthritis developing periodontal disease. As part of this i wanted to develop some guidelines for helping a patient with dexterity problems - but so far i have found nothing! i thought maybe curved handled toothbrushes might be available or aids to make the handle of a brush bigger - but i am really struggling?!
Can you think of a site that may stock such things? do they even exist?!
i know this isnt a problem that i am directly suffering with at the moment, but i'd like to be able to offer support to patients in the future so would really appreciate any advice on the matter.
