HIV Patients and the Importance of Dental Treatments

HIV Patients and the Importance of Dental Treatments
There are patients with certain conditions that may make their oral healthcare more demanding than the average individual. This includes HIV patients that are at a high risk for a wide array of serious oral health diseases and complications that could affect their entire body. This is why our dentist in Culver City believes that everyone diagnosed with HIV should understand the basics of the oral health and what our dental practice can do for them.

Like all of the other soft tissues and bones in the body, the mouth is going to be susceptible to disease any time that the immune system has been weakened. This means that HIV patients are at a very high risk of conditions such as dental cavities and periodontitis. The first step in steering clear of this decay and disease is adhering to impeccable oral hygiene habits at home. HIV patients should stick to a strict schedule of washing, brushing, and flossing at all times.

These patients should also keep a very close eye on any abnormalities that are found within the mouth. This could include excessive bleeding, lesions, or sores. These may be indicators of more serious problems taking place such as opportunistic tumors, thrush, canker sores, and herpes.

The key to maintaining great oral while being an HIV patient is by scheduling a thorough dental exam multiple times a year. Our friendly staff and team of experienced dentists will be able to keep track of your oral health and reduce the chances of any major oral health conditions.
