Oral health of adults with learning disabilities


 

This project looked at the oral health of people with learning disabilities.

What we did

We wanted to find out why people with learning disabilities have poor oral health.

560 adults with learning disabilities had a dental examination.

What we found

People with learning disabilities have very poor oral health.

A lot of people with learning disabilities have missing teeth.

Poor oral health can be very painful.

What we will do next

We will share the information that we found.
