Abstract

Some signs of myasthenia gravis can be clearly identified in the oral cavity. The patient with progressive neuromuscular impairment may seek consultation because of dysphagia, impaired mastication, and dysarthria. The dentist should understand the pathophysiology of the symptoms and treat the myasthenic patient accordingly.
