Celebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a physical impairment that affects movement and coordination. It is the most common cause of congenital cause of physical impairment with an estimated incidence of around 1 in 400 children with some degree of CP. It is caused by damage or a lesion to a child’s brain early during development, either in utero, during birth or in the first few months of infancy. Its severity varies, some may experience movement problems that are barely noticeable, causing movements to appear awkward or clumsy while for others these problems might be very severe leaving them wheelchair bound, with severe learning difficulties requiring a lifetime of personal care. As dental professionals, it is important for us to understand the condition and implications on dental management to provide the best possible care for our patients as it can impact on a wide variety of issues such as obtaining valid consent, access and operative treatment.
