Dental Work

Aug 8, 2010

I was recently dx 2 months ago with HIV-1 and my numbers are good. Not on meds yet,CD4 is close to 800 and viral load around 9,000, however, recently my dentist told me I have Periodontitis. I want to get this treated before its gets bad and want cosmetic work done (braces). Can I still have cosmetic work done given my status and numbers??

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Yes you can.
