Background: Chronic renal diseases (CRDs), a progressive and irreversible decline in renal function with the most implications in dentistry. Kidneys have the following functions: filtering waste metabolic products, maintaining electrolyte balance and the volume of extracellular liquid, and regulating the acid–base balance and endocrine secretions (prostaglandins, erythropoietin, rennin, and Vitamin D). Objectives: To find a correlation between chronic renal conditions and oral cavity and to evaluate the manifestations of CRDs in the oral cavity. Results: Various oral manifestations such as mucosal pallor, petechiae, ecchymosis, uremic stomatitis, and periodontal changes are observed in patients with CRDs. Conclusions: CRDs have a significant impact on oral health, which needs intervention at an early stage of disease and its management to improve the general health status of patients.
