HIV: WHAT TO DO WHEN-GET DENTAL CARE AND GET EXERCISE

The dental problems common to all adults—diseases of the teeth and of the supporting structures of the teeth—seem to occur more frequently and more severely in people with HIV infection. See your dentist regularly. Floss and brush your teeth assiduously. Tell your dentist about your HIV infection: people who are prone to dental problems should probably see the dentist more frequently, and the dentist may change some of his or her normal recommendations. Some dentists may also wish to take additional precautions while working in your mouth, even though the standard recommendation is that all people receiving any kind of medical and dental care should be treated as though they have HIV infection.     Get Exercise-Aerobic exercise programs are widely advocated as a way of staying healthy and of preventing cardiovascular disease. Whether exercise is similarly helpful to people with HIV infection is unknown. Most people who exercise regularly, however, feel better both physically and emotionally. There is no reason for a person with HIV infection to avoid regular exercise as long as fatigue or other symptoms do not prevent it.
