Aims: The purpose of this study was to identify the description of dental caries and oral hygiene of drug users. Subjects and Methods: This descriptive study has 60 participants. Oral hygiene index-S (OHI-S) and caries severity with decay-missing-filling-T (DMF-T) index were performed. Subjective data collection on the knowledge and behavior of drug users was obtained from the results of questionnaires filled by respondents. Results: OHI-S of respondents was 1.8 and mean of DMF-T was 4.33, which means that the condition of dental and oral hygiene of the respondents was still not good. The mean results of OHI-S score for drug users <10 years of consumption was 1.03, those who consumed for 10–20 years was 2.06, and those who consumed over 20 years was 2.85. DMF-T of <10 years of drug users had mean DMF-T of 1.5, those who consumed drugs between 10 and 20 years was 2.6, and those who consumed over 20 years of 7.9. Conclusions: Overall, most drug users had good oral hygiene and above mean caries severity.
