Abstract

The oral health status of 36 long term heroin addicts was measured. Age, sex, race, education, income, and geographic location were compared. The periodontal condition of the former addicts also showed lowered health status. It would appear that long term heroin addiction either contributes directly to lowered oral health status, or more likely, causes individuals to lead a life style which has ramifications to their oral health.
