Please research and write a paper discussing a special need, dentalpatient and be aware of conditions associated with the patient, including any indications/contraindications for your case study.
Dental patients with special needs often ??” but not always ??” have higher rates of poor oral hygiene. As a result, they also have a higher incidence of gum diseases and cavities than people in the general population. Those considered dental patients with special needs represent individuals with a broad range of conditions that do not necessarily relate to oral health.
