Dental Health in Parkinson's

If you or a loved one is living with Parkinson’s disease (PD), you are surely aware of its complexities. Among these, one that is often overlooked by both neurologists and people with Parkinson’s disease is dental health. Why is it so important to address dental health issues? Poor dental hygiene can affect nutrition and increase risk for stroke, cognitive impairment and weight loss. Parkinson’s disease often poses unique challenges in establishing and maintaining an effective dental treatment strategy.

Combating Depression

Depression is one of the major, and most common, challenges for people living with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Everyone feels sad from time to time and it is normal to experience stress when faced with a difficult disease such as Parkinson’s. However, the sadness that is part of being human can become a significant problem if it crosses into the realm of clinical depression and is left untreated.

Constipation and PD

Living with Parkinson’s disease (PD) can be challenging. It can become even more challenging when you or a loved one experiences digestive issues, such as constipation, cramping and bloating. Constipation and digestive issues are very common among people with Parkinson’s disease. They can be caused both by the disease itself and by the medications used to treat it. The good news is that you can do something about it. There are steps that people with Parkinson’s disease can take to ease the symptoms of constipation or sometimes prevent it.
