ERWIN'S LAW 

for Protection of Sexual Abuse

Erwin's fight to make a law that protects children and be taught in public schools.

MOST UNNOTICED EFFECTS 

INCURRED 

BY SEXUAL ABUSE

These are some issues that stem from different forms of sexual abuse that might go unnoticed by survivors of sexual abuse

 and MOST ALWAYS by both Mental Health counselors 

and all Medical field staff (incl. Doctors/Nurses). 

Here is a short list of a few. More will be added in time:


ORAL ABUSE -

Dental Care; Brushing Teeth

Dental Visits/procedures

Claustrophobia


    Depending on the age of the initial abuse, often there is 

issues with one brushing or caring for their teeth and issues during dental procedures due to the trauma and the brutal force 

of this occurrence. 


When attending dental procedures for basic cleanings or other procedures, I recommend letting your dentist know of this matter to help ease the experience. It has helped me greatly.


One main issue is gagging whenever an instrument

 goes near the back of the throat. 


As well, due to the trauma and the brutal force 

caused by this form of sexual abuse, both the teeth formation and gums issues can also occur as time moves on.  


Another issue caused by this form of sexual abuse 

is feeling suffocated, as in claustrophobia.
