Besides creating havoc on the body's immune system, the AIDS virus also causes serious damage to the mouth and the surrounding structures. The mouth as we know is a hotbed of all kinds of microorganisms, some of which are quite normal to the area.

Besides, the teeth themselves, lips, tongue, gums and cheeks are affected by AIDS.
