Jones, Hannah, Adams, Clive, Clifton, Andrew, Callaghan, Patrick, Liddle, Peter, Buchanan, Heather and Aggarwal, Vishal (2013) A pragmatic cluster randomised controlled trial of an oral health intervention for people with serious mental illness (three shires early intervention dental trial). Trials, 14 (S1). p. 19. ISSN 1745-6215

People with mental illness have poor oral health compared to those without due to medication side effects, issues with self-care, barriers to treatment and poor recognition of dental problems. Guidelines recommend giving oral health advice and monitoring oral health for people with mental illness, but this is not reflected in current practice and Cochrane reviews found no existing randomised trials of these interventions.
