Parathyroid hormone secreted by the parathyroid glands has a key role in the regulation of calcium and phosphorus metabolism and plays an essential role in tooth and bone mineralization. Disorders of the parathyroid glands most frequently result in abnormalities of serum calcium and can induce various oral and extra-oral manifestations. Therefore, a sound understanding of these conditions is essential for the dental practitioner, with emphasis on alerting signs, clinical and radiological findings and mandatory communication with patient’s physician.
