Your patients are living longer thanks to their medications, but many of the physician-prescribed medications used by your patients have dental implications and side effects affecting your treatment plan. This presentation includes the indications, contraindications, and side effects of the most common physician-prescribed medications. Many of these medications were not approved when you took your pharmacology course in dental school. These medications represent one-third of all prescriptions taken by your dental patients and familiarity with these drugs will provide the dental practitioner with a better appreciation for the health profile of your dental patient.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
  • Prescription, OTC medications, and foods that could adversely interact with dental drugs
  • Why your patient is taking their medications
  • What oral side effects may be caused by these medications
  • When not to prescribe NSAIDS
