Learn to treat dental patients with disabilities or who are medically compromised with “A Practical Approach to Special Care in Dentistry”. Discussing more than 50 topics based on real-world clinical cases, this book helps the reader to apply knowledge in a clinical case context.
Each chapter contains a case report establishing the main risk factors relating to the provision of dental treatment. The case report is accompanied by a practical set of adaptations for the reader to follow to minimise the rate and severity of potential complications for their patient.
The book also includes:
•  A thorough introduction to patients with disabilities, including physical disabilities, (such as cerebral palsy and epilepsy) and cognitive impairments (such as Down’s Syndrome)
•  Comprehensive explorations of the treatment of medically compromised patients, including those with infectious diseases, endocrine diseases, hepatorenal disease, and cardiovascular disease
•  Practical discussions of other special patient situations, such as those with allergies, use of antiresorptive and antiangiogenic drugs, terminal patients, underhoused patients, and pregnant or breastfeeding patients
Perfect for general dentists, undergraduate students of odontology, and graduate students of special care dentistry, “A Practical Approach to Special Care in Dentistry” is also a must-read resource for dental specialists in special care dentistry, hospital odontology, geriatric odontology, oral surgery, and dental hygienists.
