    What Are the Symptoms of HIV-Related Oral Issues?

    Oral symptoms may have been the first symptom you noticed if you have HIV. Common symptoms include mouth pain, tooth loss, and infections. Other symptoms include mouth ulcers, thrush, dry mouth, and other oral abnormalities.

    Mouth pain may prevent you from eating or taking necessary medication. Don’t live in pain; seek dental treatment from CAN Community Health. Consistent dental treatment helps to alleviate the oral symptoms of HIV.

    Your mouth is a window into what’s going on in the rest of your body, often serving as a helpful vantage point for detecting the early signs and symptoms of systemic disease — a disease that affects or pertains to your entire body, not just one of its parts. Systemic conditions such as HIV or diabetes, for example, often first become apparent as mouth lesions or other oral problems. In fact, according to the Academy of General Dentistry, more than 90 percent of all systemic diseases produce oral signs and symptoms.
