Abstract

Oral health care for people with Huntington's disease should be based on the principles of achieving a disease-free, pain-free, and safe mouth, with the standard care and treatment that is no less than that which is provided for an individual that does not have this condition. Such care and treatment will take into account the health and safety of each individual within the context of his or her condition. Particular emphasis is placed on dental professionals working within a multidisciplinary team, focusing on prevention of oral disease and providing treatment appropriate to the various stages of the progression of this condition.
