Ensure your patients' health and safety! Practical guidance helps you determine the severity and stability of common medical disorders in the dental office, so you'll always know how to proceed to provide the best possible care and avoid complications. Concise, clinically focused coverage details the basic disease process for each condition, along with the incidence and prevalence, pathophysiology, signs and symptoms, laboratory findings, currently accepted medical therapies, and recommendations for specific dental management. For the first time, the table of contents will be divided into parts by the category of medical condition, making it faster and easier for the dental professional to search by condition. Bacterial Endocarditis Prophylaxis, Chapter 2, incorporates the latest American Heart Association guidelines to help prevent endocarditis. Smoking and Tobacco Use Cessation, Chapter 8, discusses the systemic and oral effects of smoking and includes suggestions for encouraging smoker cessation. Tuberculosis, Chapter 9, clearly defines related oral complications and adverse drug effects of the disease and identifies methods for management in dental patients. Sleep-Related Breathing Disorders, Chapter 10, details obstructive sleep apnea and treatment options including oral appliances and surgical procedures. Rheumatologic and Connective Tissue Disorders, Chapter 21, discusses treatment options for patients with rheumatoid arthritis, Osteoarthritis, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Lyme Disease, and Sjögren's Syndrome. Chapters 23 and 24 highlight the oral complications of both red and white blood cell disorders. Behavioral and Psychiatric Disorders, Chapters 28 and 29, provide guidelines for managing conditions like depression, eating disorders, anxiety, and schizophrenia, and indicate proper drugs for treatment. Alternative Drugs Appendix provides treatment options from the growing areas of alternative and complementary medicine.
