Clinical applications for new classification: peri-implant diseases

Common questions dental patients ask and how to answer

A common misconception in medicine is that the mouth is disconnected from the rest of the body when dealing with disease. On the contrary, the mouth can be a window into the systemic health of an individual. Most oral issues are confined to the mouth and can be resolved with dental therapy. However, oral manifestations of systemic disease are prevalent and may require the consult of a medical physician.

In my article this month, I share some of the most common questions patients ask their dentists about pathology found in the mouth, as well as answers to those questions that you can use in your practices.
