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.

  • The Dental Management Summary Table outlines each medical problem according to the potential problems related to the dental treatment of medically compromised patients.
  • The Infection Control Appendix presents the most up-to-date information on this increasingly important topic.
  • The Treatment of Oral Lesions Appendix provides quick reference on the management of common oral lesions seen by dentists.
  • More emphasis is given to medications used to treat conditions covered in the book, offering readers up-to-date information on drugs that are most commonly prescribed.
  • A new chapter includes information on the special problems associated with geriatric patients (Chapter 26).
  • An expanded chapter on oral cancer now includes general cancer content (Chapter 21).
  • New topics - including multiple sclerosis, antithrombotic agents, Lyme disease, and Sjogren's syndrome - provide the most up-to-date content available.
  • Conditions susceptible to endocarditis are covered in a separate chapter.
  • The importance of modern equipment and current diagnostic information is emphasized to assess and monitor patients with moderate to severe medical disease.
  • A new quick and easy summary table in the front of the book addresses the management of medical emergencies in the dental office.
  • A new appendix covers important drug interactions between medications (Appendix C).
  • More than 60 new figures illustrate concepts and clinical findings.
