Use your knowledge of pharmacology to enhance oral care! Pharmacology and Therapeutics for Dentistry, 6th Edition describes how to evaluate a patient’s health and optimize dental treatment by factoring in the drugs they take. It explores the basic fundamentals of pharmacology, special topics such as pain control, fear and anxiety, and oral complications of cancer therapy, and most importantly, the actions of specific drug groups on the human body. Whether you’re concerned about the drugs a patient is already taking or the drugs you prescribe for treatment, this book helps you reduce risk and provide effective dental care.

    • An emphasis on the dental applications of pharmacology relates drugs to dental considerations in clinical practice.
    • Dental aspects of many drug classes are expanded to include antibiotics, analgesics, and anesthetics.
    • The Alternative Medicine in Dentistry chapter discusses chemicals used as alternative medicines and assesses their potential benefits and risks.
    • The Nonopioid Analgesics chapter groups together non-opioid analgesics, nonsterioidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and antirheumatic and antigout drugs, making these easier to locate and study.
    • Coverage of the endocrine system includes four separate chapters for the most comprehensive coverage.
    • Drug Interactions in Clinical Dentistry appendix lists potential interactions between drugs a patient is taking for nondental conditions and drugs that may be used or prescribed during dental treatment, including effects and recommendations.
    • Glossary of Abbreviations appendix includes the most common abbreviations used for drugs or conditions.
    • New Pharmacogenetics and Pharmacogenomics chapter covers the effects of genetic traits of patients on their responses to drugs.
    • A NEW introductory section offers tips for the study of dental pharmacology and relates pharmacology to dental considerations.
    • An updated discussion of drug-drug interactions covers the harmful effects of mixing medications.
    • Coverage of adverse effects and mechanisms of COX-2 inhibitors, antibiotic prophylaxis, and antiplaque agents explains the dental risks relating to common drug treatments.
