Abnormal Dentition

Dentition

    • Look For

    • Erythema, swelling or tenderness of the gingiva and discolouration or caries of the teeth.
    • Significance

    • Poor dentition is a nidus for infection that can spread systemically, most notably as a cause of infective endocarditis.
    • Poor oral health also increases the risk of fatal coronary events.
    • Gum disease is a sign of malnutrition.
