Abstract

LINK BETWEEN ORAL AND SYSTEMIC DISEASES – INTERPRETATION OF LABORATORY INVESTIGATION REPORT

Sowjanya B, Phanikrishna B

There is ample evidence of a link between oral and systemic diseases. Dental procedures are associated with a finite risk to the patient. Medical risk assessment begins with identification of medical problems by taking medical history, physical examination, laboratory tests and medical consultation. Diabetes mellitus has adverse effects on entire body. Hepatobiliary diseases can produce mucocutaneous lesions. It is important to be familiar with various bleeding disorders and baseline hematological investigations before embarking on dental surgeries. The laboratory investigations often provide the missing link between oral and systemic diseases.
