Abstract

INTRODUCTIONCrack use is a public health problem, especially due to its systemic (Ribeiro, Dunn, Laranjeira, & Sesso, ), behavioral (Morano, Gibson, & Altice, ), and oral health‐related consequences (Antoniazzi, Zanatta, Rösing, & Feldens, ; Woyceichoski et al., ). The consumption of the drug varies, depending on socioeconomic development and access to crack in different countries (Bracken, Rodolico, & Hill, ; Lozano et al., ; Roe, Beynon, Pickering, & Duffy, ). The prevalence of illicit drug use in Brazil remains high, with approximately 1% of the population having used crack (Abdalla et al., ; Madruga et al., ). The profile of crack users in Brazil is characterized mainly by unemployed men less than 30 years of age, with low income and schooling, greater involvement in prostitution, and a greater probability of living on the street (Duailibi, Ribeiro, & Laranjeira, ).The oral health status of drug addicts has been evaluated in investigations addressing objective or normative oral health conditions (Antoniazzi et al., ; Cury, Oliveira, & Dos Santos, ; Mitchell‐Lewis, Phelan, Kelly, Bradley, & Lamster, ; Molendijk, Ter Horst, Kasbergen, Truin, & Mulder, ; Woyceichoski et al., ).
