Overview

This comprehensive resource covers the entire spectrum of pharmacology for dental students and practitioners from the basic principles of drugs and their actions on the body to detailed clinical applications of drugs in dental treatment. Special attention is given to drugs that are used in dentistry, such as antibiotics for the treatment and prophylaxis of acute infection or treatment of periodontal disease and anesthetic and analgesic agents for the management of pain. Every chapter ends with vital information on "Dental Implications," even for drugs that are not directly dental-related.

* All chapters include updated, revised lists of pertinent drugs virtually every FDA-approved drug that is currently used.
• Offers crucial information on emergency preparedness and which drugs should be included in a medical-emergency kit.
• Includes a "Drug Interactions in Clinical Dentistry" appendix and a helpful "Glossary of Abbreviations."
