Aim: To make a review on the needs and managements of oral care among a people with intellectual disability. Objective: The objective of this study is to find out the various oral problems in a adults with intellectual disability and to review the ways of improving their dental health. Background: Previous research has found an unmet need for oral care. The key factors which have been indicated are low expectations, fear of treatment, lack of awareness among carers and problems in accessing dental services. The aims of the present study were: (1) to assess the extent of unmet clinical needs in a group. (2) to explore their perceptions of teeth and contact with dentists to identify how oral care can be improved. Reason: Caretakers requested training in oral care and the use of dental services. Dental screening checks and oral care training for carers should be made easily available. Care plans should include tooth-brushing and dietary issues for all clients who have their own natural teeth.
