HIV infection and periodontal disease.Ann R Australas Coll Dent Surg. 2000 Oct; 15:331-4.AR
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) has profoundly affected the clinical practice of dentistry since the early 1980s. Acute lesions such as linear gingival erythema (LGE) and necrotizing ulcerative periodontitis (NUP) were described as HIV-related oral lesions. The behaviour of chronic gingivitis and periodontitis as well as other practice-related issues are discussed in this paper.
