Description

This is the first of a five-part series covering the “basics” of oral surgery for the general practitioner. The typical dentist’s training in oral surgery is usually quite rudimentary, but in private practice, referral to a specialist may not be an option in every case. Yet, should a problem arise, general practitioners are held to the same standard of care as the specialist. This series aims to increase the knowledge level and comfort zone of the general dentist when performing surgical procedures. Topics to be covered on this first module include evaluation of the patient’s medical history, management of the patient on anticoagulants, antibiotic prophylaxis, and informed consent. Subsequent chapters will cover surgical extractions, impacted third molars, biopsy indications and techniques, and management of complications.

Objectives

Have a better knowledge on the relationship between a patient’s medical history and medications and dental care.

Understand when a patient should be taken off of anticoagulants perioperatively, and when it is not necessary. Be able to decide whether prophylactic antibiotics are indicated for surgical and dental treatment. Understand the importance of Informed Consent as part of the preoperative discussion with each patient.
