Abstract

The incidence of renal diseases continues to rise worldwide and as a consequence, increasing number of renal patients will probably require oral healthcare. Renal osteodystrophy refers to the wide spectrum of bone diseases in context to chronic renal diseases (CRD). Radiographic alterations affecting the jaws and facial skeleton are common and among the earliest signs of renal bone diseases. The aim of the present study is to review and highlight the various radiographic alterations affecting the maxillofacial region in renal osteodystrophy and enabling the general and specialty oral physicians to identify and diagnose them effectively.
