Developmental disabilities can cause challenges to an individual’s oral health. Developmental disabilities, also called intellectual and developmental disabilities or IDDs, are a group of conditions that usually begin at birth or in childhood. They are caused by physical, cognitive, learning, and/or behavior impairments. People with developmental disabilities may find themselves at a disadvantage when it comes to oral health. Studies show that people with IDDs are at higher risk for dental and oral health problems.
There are many reasons for this. Preventative dental care, such as a flossing and brushing routine, can be difficult to carry out regularly for those with IDDs. Additionally, some of the chronic health problems experienced by those with developmental disabilities, like diabetes, can also cause oral health problems.
