Oral Health

• Persons with learning disabilities have high levels of unmet oral health needs.

• This includes gum disease, untreated dental caries and missing teeth.

• G.O.R.D. and anticholinergic drugs contribute to dental erosions.

• If the person has not had a dental check in the last 6 months, advise the carer to self refer to a mainstream dentist for an appointment.  If mainstream services are not appropriate please refer through SCI Gateway to the special needs dentist: (Please note that the special needs dentist will only accept referrals through SCI Gateway now and people are unable to self refer)
