HIV and Oral Health

I originally posted this article about 3 years ago and I thought it may be a good one to repost. I got a few comments the last time amd it's an informative article! I hope you'll find it useful!

With the advance of medical technology over the last 20 years, so much more is now known about the importance of oral health for people infected with HIV. Did you know that there are over 30 oral conditions that can either result from or be more problematic for people with HIV infection? Some of these conditions can occur in people who are not infected, but some of them are found exclusively in people who are infected. Did you know that at one time, it was thought that root canals and other invasive procedures should not be performed on people with HIV/AIDS, and that there are publications today that have been updated for copyright, but still include this misinformation in the transcripts? Oral health and preventative care is important for everyone, but even more important for people with compromised immune systems. Education is essential.
