Dentists– we love to hate them! Sitting in the waiting room waiting to be called and that sense of relief when they’ve finished and you can leave! The bottom line is, we all should look after our teeth, and make sure that they are healthy for as long as possible!
How well do you look after your teeth? Be honest now! The reality is that it is important for everyone to look after them, but it’s particularly important if you’re living with HIV. Did you know that some HIV medications can cause your mouth to be dry, and produce less saliva?
Saliva is the stuff that helps remove food and bacteria from between the teeth in between proper brushes. If you’re not producing enough saliva, they can just sit there and that can lead to an increase in tooth decay, gum infections and other problems in your mouth.
