Oral Health: The First Reflector of AIDS

Oral health, or the lack of it rather, is often one of the first reflectors of AIDS. HIV can cause serious damage to the mouth and the surrounding structures. Under immunocompromised conditions, the usual microorganisms in the mouth can set off irreparable damage to the teeth, lips, tongue, gums and cheeks.

For more information on oral health during AIDS and its maintenance, join Medindia’s support group today.
