Oral Health and HIV

oral health fact sheet, HRSA

People with HIV experience a high incidence of common oral health problems (e.g., dental decay/cavities, gingivitis) as well as other oral health problems that are directly related to HIV infection. Between 32 and 46 percent of people with HIV will have at least one major HIV-related oral health problem—bacterial, viral, and fungal infections as well as cancer and ulcers—in the course of their disease. This factsheet describes the HRSA resources available for people with HIV through the Ryan White program.
