Oral hygiene programmes for people with intellectual disabilities

A systematic review will be undertaken of oral hygiene programmes aimed at training and supporting individuals with an intellectual disability and/or their carers about oral hygiene practices which are likely to improve the oral health of people with an intellectual disability in primary and secondary care settings. These programmes will be compared to usual care or no specific care to investigate the extent of their effects both beneficial and harmful.
