Most systemic diseases can affect the oral cavity. Some oral changes are nonspecific, whereas others directly lead to the diagnosis of a particular disorder. A systems approach is used here to catalog these oral changes. In some instances it is difficult to separate the oral manifestations of pharmacotherapy for a particular disease from that entity. The oral manifestations of pharmacotherapy are presented for selected disease processes. This article introduces the most common oral manifestations of systemic disease.
