Feedback:  0 comments, 0 ratings

      

Abstract: Some advanced and slightly more invasive treatments require the use of certain drugs before, during and after the treatment like local anesthetics, vasoconstrictors, anxiolytics, analgesics and antibiotics. All of these can possibly interact with medications a patient is already taking and can also interfere with the current dental treatment and create complications. This article aims to provide necessary information about commonly encountered systemic diseases and associated treating medications, their mechanism of action, possible complications and their management.

Clinical relevance: This article discusses drugs that are used for treating various systemic conditions, but can have a harmful effect on minor oral surgery procedures.
