Abstract

Patients who have thyroid disease present a treatment challenge to the dentist. Awareness of the condition and current stage of treatment is important in understanding the possible modifications needed for dental treatment. The main complications associated with hyperthyroidism are cardiac comorbidity, others are diabetes mellitus and asthma. Consultation with physicians/ endocrinologist is warranted if any sign or symptom is noted on examination. Dental treatment modifications may be necessary for dental patients who are under medical management and follow- up for a thyroid condition.
