Children suffering from obsessive-compulsive disorder frequently manifest bizarre behaviors that contribute to the development of oral pathology. The medications used in management of the disorder can cause profound xerostomia and compound the magnitude of oral disease. An understanding of the diagnosis and treatment of the disorder will better prepare the dentist to meet the needs of this unique group of patients.
