Sickle cell disease and trait: an increase in trabecular spacing, a case study.
A case report of a patient with sickle cell disease trait and the radiographically evident trabecular bone changes is examined in this article. The purpose of this article is to raise awareness in the dental and dental hygiene professional community of the treatment and clinical management of patients with sickle cell disease (SCD) and sickle cell disease trait (SCD trait). Dentists and dental hygienists can provide optimum clinical care for this patient population by incorporating appropriate clinical management according to the most recent advances in the recognition and treatment of patients with SCD and SCD trait.
