Dental Management of the Medically Compromised Patient
About this book
DENTAL MANAGEMENT OF THE MEDICALLY COMPROMISED PATIENT is an up-to-date, concise, factual reference describing the dental management of patients with selected medical problems. The book offers the dental provider an understanding of how to ascertain the severity and stability of common medical disorders, and make dental management decisions that afford the patient the utmost health and safety. Medical problems are organized to provide a brief overview of the basic disease process, the incidence and prevalence of the disease, pathophysiology, signs and symptoms, laboratory findings, currently accepted medical therapy of each problem, and a detailed explanation and recommendations for specific dental management. The accumulation of evidence-based research over the last few years has allowed the authors to include more specific dental management guidelines in the sixth edition.
