What type can't be detected?
      #30299 - 03/21/02 05:09 PM

Is it true that with negative antibody testing there are some types of hiv infection subtype that won't pick up? And has anyone experienced yellowish marks on both sides of the lower gums? Is that similiar to the red band gingivitus? Could yellowish stain on lower teeth be just plaque even though I brush regularly? My dentist had to rinse it off with a water spraying machine last year. Thanks for your help. GOD Bless everyone here.

I have never heard of tooth stains being related to hiv. I suspect almost everyone needs to have a dentist clean their teeth once or twice a year. That said, cigarette smoking, or heavy coffee or tea drinking, can cause accelerated tooth staining.
