What Oral Problems are Caused by HIV/AIDS?

People with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the virus that causes acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), are at special risk for oral health problems. Many of these problems arise because the person’s immune system is weakened and less able to fight off infection.

Some of the most common oral problems for people with HIV/AIDS include:

  • oral warts
  • fever blisters
  • hairy leukoplakia
  • oral candidiasis (thrush)
  • aphthous ulcers, often called canker sores
