Author(s): Dr. Parth Pandya, Dr. Shrey Pandya, Dr. Suruchi Sindwani, Dr. Suman Sharma, Meghna Bose and Dr. Rohit Narendra Rathod
Abstract: Chikungunya is a viral disease caused by the Chikungunya virus (CHIKV), primarily transmitted to humans by infected mosquitoes. While the disease is well-known for its systemic manifestations, including fever, joint pain, and rash, there have been reports of oral manifestations associated with Chikungunya infection. These may include pathos ulcers, gingivitis, and mucosal ulceration, which can significantly impact the oral health and well-being of affected individuals. In this review article, we explore the oral manifestations of Chikungunya and discuss important dental considerations for healthcare providers. Dental professionals should be mindful of potential oral manifestations, pain management, oral hygiene, immunocompromised patients, dental treatment planning, and symptom management when treating patients affected by Chikungunya. By addressing these considerations, dental professionals can provide optimal care for individuals with Chikungunya infection and contribute to their overall health and well-being.
