Symptoms of Kidney Disease
Kidney Disease and Dental Treatment
If you or someone you know has kidney disease, don’t neglect your dental health. Kidney disease is associated with many dental health complications, including increased risk of
periodontal disease, tooth loss, and inflammation of the salivary glands. So, it’s important to maintain a consistent oral health routine, including regular dental visits.
In addition, kidney disease can cause
chronic bad breath because diseased kidneys can’t remove urea from the blood, and it breaks down to form ammonia, which creates an unpleasant smell.
People with kidney disease should schedule dental visits for days that immediately follow a dialysis day. They should also follow these steps at each dental visit:
