Understanding the Importance of Regular Dental Check-ups When You Have Crohn's Disease
Crohn's Disease is labelled as an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), but it can affect any part of your digestive tract from your mouth to your anus. It can also cause extra-intestinal symptoms such as arthritis, osteoporosis and dermatitis. People with Crohn's disease don't always understand the importance of regular dental check-ups with a dentist who has experience of treating patients with IBD. A good dentist is an invaluable addition to your medical care team.
