For student and practising dentists, this text discusses in detail systemic diseases that can complicate dental treatment or that have manifestations in the mouth. It outlines their impact on dentistry and indicates how these problems should be dealt with.
Medical Problems in Dentistry has become established as the foremost guide for all members of the oral health care team, providing up-to-date information on all the factors that may impinge upon the dental care of patients with systemic disease or on drugs. Extensively updated throughout, this new edition provides information covering a wide range of areas in the developing specialty of Special Needs Dentistry, as well as newly relevant areas such as imported exotic diseases and aspects of transcultural health. An understanding of the possible hazards of operative intervention in patients suffering from each of the conditions discussed provides valuable guidance for every dental practitioner - especially relevant in the face of the growing risk of litigation. Medical Problems in Dentistry is an essential reference for all dental undergraduates, postgraduates on vocational training or studying for the Fellowship or Masters courses, hospital and university dental staff, and for conscientious general dental practitioners, hygienists and nurses who wish to keep abreast of changes in the medical scene.
