Risk Assessment and Oral Diagnostics in Clinical Dentistry

Overview

Many diseases can have an impact upon oral health and/or the safe delivery of dental care. Consequently, oral health care providers need to be comfortable with assessing the risk of providing dental care to their patients with systemic disease as well as the evaluation of oral conditions that may represent manifestations or consequences of systemic disease. Risk Assessment and Oral Diagnostics in Clinical Dentistry aims to enable the dental practitioner to comfortably and capably assess when medical conditions ...

Overview

Many diseases can have an impact upon oral health and/or the safe delivery of dental care. Consequently, oral health care providers need to be comfortable with assessing the risk of providing dental care to their patients with systemic disease as well as the evaluation of oral conditions that may represent manifestations or consequences of systemic disease. Risk Assessment and Oral Diagnostics in Clinical Dentistry aims to enable the dental practitioner to comfortably and capably assess when medical conditions may impact dental care and diagnose oral conditions using routine testing modalities.

This clinical guide contains succinct and detailed text with visual aids regarding how to obtain and perform diagnostic tests, how to interpret these tests, and the implications of tests results upon the management of medically complex dental patients and patients with oral conditions. Color photographs show conditions, testing equipment, and test results. An appendix highlights the ten most common oral medicine disorders encountered in dental practice.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This book provides generalists at any level a good overview of common oral diseases. Importantly, it provides a useful metric to approaching medically compromised individuals. There are a few other books that may provide a more in-depth review of oral medicine and management of the medically complex patient in dentistry, such as Oral Medicine and Medically Complex Patients, 6th edition, Lockhart (Wiley-Blackwell, 2013), which treats the topic in more depth.” (Doody’s, 3 January 2014)
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jennifer Webster, DDS, PhD (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Dentistry)
Description: Divided into two parts, this book first outlines an algorithm for the approach to any medically compromised individual, then describes the diagnosis of orofacial disorders associated with infection, malignancy, and autoimmunity.
Purpose: The purpose is twofold: to provide guidelines for risk assessment of systemic conditions that may be associated with dental complications and to review diagnosis of oral conditions. Given the rapidly growing immune-compromised global population, these objectives are important to any dental provider.
Audience: The book provides a good review or update for those who have been out of practice, but it is also a wonderful reference for students, particularly those in a hospital-based residency program. The authors feel that the book broadly targets students, residents, and practicing dentists. This is a good book for generalists at any level, but experienced hospital dentists may need a bit more. The authors are credible authorities in the dental treatment of medically compromised individuals.
Features: Great clinical photos, radiographs, and tables are useful for easy reference. The book also provides good overviews that include current systemic medication regimens and references to newer molecular findings with regard to pathogenesis. There are a significant number of examples that refer to disease experience in other regions. Some subjects could be covered in more depth, such as cancers and radiation sensitive types, ranges of radiation used, and risks of dental treatment to radiated bone and tissues.
Assessment: This book provides generalists at any level a good overview of common oral diseases. Importantly, it provides a useful metric to approaching medically compromised individuals. There are a few other books that may provide a more in-depth review of oral medicine and management of the medically complex patient in dentistry, such as Oral Medicine and Medically Complex Patients, 6th edition, Lockhart (Wiley-Blackwell, 2013), which treats the topic in more depth.
