  • OSC-3 Systemic Manifestations of Oral Disease and Oral Manifestations of Systemic Disease/Drug Related Osteonecrosis

    Product not yet rated Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Speaker: Cesar A.. Migliorati, D.D.S., M.S., PhD| We will discuss the importance of evaluating and treating patients as a whole person. A large number of our patients have medical compromise that could require modification of dental care. Focus will be placed on cancer patients and how cancer therapies can affect the oral cavity.

    CE: 1.5

    Course Description: 

    We will discuss the importance of evaluating and treating patients as a whole person. A large number of our patients have medical compromise that could require modification of dental care. Focus will be placed on cancer patients and how cancer therapies can affect the oral cavity. Oral complications observed during cancer treatment will be presented and diagnosis and management will be discussed. Several new anticancer drugs are being introduced and new oral complications are being diagnosed. Emphasis will be on osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ) including the way to diagnose and manage this complication. Jaw pain in patients taking antiresorptives may mimic toothache, leading to endodontic treatment. The persistence of symptoms after endodontic therapy frustrate patients and professionals.

    At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

    • Conduct an evaluation of cancer patients and describe common oral complications of cancer therapies.
    • Recognize and define osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ) using clinical signs and symptoms that may be present with this oral complication.
    • Describe stages of ONJ and recommended management protocols, including possible indication for endodontic therapy.

  • OSC-4 Three Adverse Drug Reactions Every Endodontist Needs to Know

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Speaker: Elliott V.. Hersh, D.MD, M.S., Ph.D| Patients with complex medical and drug histories are becoming more commonplace in dental practice. This article reviews three serious adverse drug interactions that are well supported by the literature and can impact endodontic practice.

    CE: 1.5

    Course Description: 

    Patients with complex medical and drug histories are becoming more commonplace in dental practice. This article reviews three serious adverse drug interactions that are well supported by the literature and can impact endodontic practice. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) inhibit the renal excretion of lithium and lead to lithium toxicity. Metronidazole and fluconazole inhibit the metabolism of warfarin by blocking cytochrome P-450 2C9 (CYP-2C9), the major metabolic pathway of warfarin, with the result being dramatic increases in patients’ international normalized ratios (INRs) and potentially fatal bleeding. Propranolol and other nonselective beta-adrenergic blocking agents can inhibit the vasodilatory effect of epinephrine in dental local anesthetic solutions, leading to hypertensive reactions and a concomitant reflex bradycardia. It is important for clinicians to recognize and avoid these serious drug interactions. By doing so, they will provide the safest and best treatment for their patients.

    At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

    • Discuss the pharmacological mechanism behind the potentially lethal metronidazole or fluconazole/warfarin interaction.
    • Identify which class of anti-hypertensive drugs where high doses but therapeutic doses of local anesthetic plus epinephrine is most likely to cause a pressor reaction with a reflex bradycardia.
    • Discuss the rationale of why ibuprofen (Advil®) and naproxen sodium (Aleve®) should be avoided in a bipolar disorder patient taking lithium (Eskalith®).
