Establishing good dental habits and having regular dental checks can reduce the likelihood of dental problems in the future. There are some dental issues that are more common in people with Down syndrome but these also occur in the general population. 

Dental  issues may occur in people with Down syndrome because of their smaller jaws and palate (the roof of the mouth) and because of the way in which their primary teeth (milk teeth) and permanent teeth develop.

As there is no dental condition that is unique only to people with Down syndrome, a general dental practitioner can offer advice and any necessary treatment.
