Abstract

Purpose of Review

This review aims to investigate the significance of oral examination and dental care in the context of buccal mucosal graft urethroplasty (BMGU) and related surgical interventions.

Recent Findings

The available literature indicates that the possible effects of general oral health assessment and treatment of oral health-related diseases on buccal mucosal graft urethroplasty results have not been clearly elucidated yet.

Summary

Urethral stricture disease poses a significant challenge in urology, necessitating meticulous management strategies. The success of BMGU may be influenced by the oral health status of the donor tissue. Recent publications highlighted a correlation between oral health problems and histological changes in the buccal mucosa, potentially impacting operative outcomes. Factors such as gingival status, periodontal health, and smoking habits may also affect graft success. Therefore, preoperative dental assessment and treatment could enhance the efficacy of BMGU by addressing oral health issues and optimising tissue condition.
