The Hidden Smile- An Overview of the General and Oral Hygiene Status of Transgenders
Keywords:Transgender, Stigma, Oral hygiene, Occlusion
Transgenders constitute quite a sizeable population that remains a neglected group, facing much
discrimination from the society in many respects especially in health. With their low self esteem and suicidal
tendencies owing to neglect and shaming, financial constraints, they often neglect to maintain good personal
hygiene. One such component is their oral health which is in a pitiful state. With this study we aim to assess
the various factors that act as barriers to the transgender community obtaining quality dental care. Their
healthcare access should be much more widened with their comfortable way of acceptance.
