Dental treatment of an OCD patient
February 12, 2017
11:16 pm

Hi, my sister has got OCD and has the habit of eating too much sugar without any control. We have warned her several times about the harmful effects of sugar consumption. Apart from diabetes, it has also started affecting her dental health. Her teeth are now filled with cavities and her front teeth are completely filled with cavities. She is getting married next month and we are planning to visit cosmetic dentists in Oakville to improve her smile before the marriage. What are the things that should be kept in mind while giving dental treatment to a person with OCD?

I removed the link in your post. There is no need to advertise a dentist.

Unless she has obsessions involving dentists or dentistry there is nithing to be done fir a sufferer getting dental work. If she does have intrusive thoughts about going to the dentist some good relaxation exercises would be a good idea. The other alternative would be to take a sedative, under the care of the physician.
