Applecross Dentist Post: Poor oral health has been linked to severe mental illness

Keep your mental health in check by maintaining your oral health!

A new study has found that those with severe mental illness or receiving psychiatric care have poorer oral health than the rest of the population! The study surveyed 89 people suffering from severe mental health, and of these a third reported not visiting a dentist in more than 5 years!
