Oral manifestations consistent with chronic kidney disease

Anna Nenova-Nogalcheva


Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a condition defined by the progressive loss of renal function and damaging, in the course of months or years. Its rising incidence on a global scale compels doctors of dental medicine to be aware of the oral manifestations and symptoms affecting the soft and hard dental tissues, which are related to the underlying condition or its treatment. The objective of this review is to look into the oral changes affecting some of the patients with terminal kidney failure receiving chronic dialysis treatment.
