Did you know that the first symptoms of HIV can be reflected in the mouth?

On World AIDS Day we dedicate a few lines to talk about the importance of AIDS awareness. UNAIDS data on the global response to HIV reveals that over the past two years, in the aftermath of ICASA-19, progress against the AIDS pandemic has slowed, resources have been reduced and as a result: millions of lives are at risk.

The Spanish Society of Periodontology (SEPA) stresses the importance for people with HIV to follow a series of practical and simple tips to avoid additional oral health problems. The care of the mouth, for people affected by this disease, has a great importance since oral problems are very frequent in people affected by this virus.

Did you know that one third of people carrying the virus have problems in this part of the body?

AIDS patients face more serious health problems, which minimises the impact of the disease on their oral health, although many of these conditions are often very painful, uncomfortable and can lead to major dental problems. The presence of the infection makes patients more susceptible to oral warts, canker sores or mouth sores as well as tooth decay and cavities. periodontitis. Also, due to some drugs, they often have dry mouth.

People's oral health can be an indicator of infections and The HIV virus is no stranger to this. Patients with the disease often show signs of the infection in the mouth, which is a very early indicator that human immunodeficiency virus infection may be present. The best way to avoid such problems is to regular visits to the dentist and check-ups and cleanings as many typical symptoms of HIV first appear in the mouth.

In the Dentoliva Clinic we want to raise awareness among our patients about oral care not only for the purpose of having a beautiful smile but also for the sake of a healthy smile. as an indicator that something in our body is not working properly. For this reason, on a day as special as today, we want to make our patients, friends and neighbours in the Oliva area aware of the need to continue research to increase our knowledge of the symptoms, as well as the need to increase the availability, quality and appropriateness of services for HIV treatment, testing and prevention.

Immensurable! From the first moment, the attention and treatment could not have been better: you always receive personalised and very pleasant attention from the reception to the dentists who treat you. The prices are not high, they provide different payment methods and all the treatments they do and recommend are for your wellbeing and the health of your mouth. They have orthodontic and dental care several Saturdays a month and this is very good because during the week those of us who work late or outside Oliva can't go and on Saturdays we can. It's my dental centre of reference and I always recommend it whenever I'm asked!
