Product Description

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.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good Answers to Hard-hitting Questions
I have been a dental hygienist now for two years, and was still a little thrown back when patients hit me with questions that I just wasn't postive I knew the answer to.Ones such as:"Why does dental treatment cost so much?" or "Are you any good?" And the toughest question of all to answer, "Do you treat patients with AIDS?" These rough questions often left me fumbling to come up with a well thought out, yet correct answer.That was until I read Robin Wright's book.This book helped me to be more comfortable answering the not so easy questions that come up when I am conversing with patients, and even helped me to communicate better with the office staff as well.Because I am able to answer these questions more effectively due to this book, it has helped me to develop a better rapport with my patients, and has built up their trust in me as a dental health care provider. Reading this book has taught me to really become a better listener in general, and to understand my patients questions and concerns.Until I read this book, I never really knew how rewarding being a dental health care provider could be, because I was always nervous about saying the "right" thing.Now I am more confident in myself, and in turn I feel that my patients are more confident in me as well.

Ever had a patient spring one of those really complicated questions at you--usually in a voice loud enough so that the entire waiting room can hear?Something like, "I see you all wear gloves now.Is one of youSICK?

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic for all dentists who are afraid of kids
    Wow, great book. Step by step instructions on how to run a children's dental practice that doesn't rely too much on drugs.

    There's scripts on how to talk to kids and parents.

    There's a description of a painless injection technique.

    And I get the feeling that the author is a very good pediatric dentist who really cares. He claims a 1% general anaesthetic rate which he worked on after years of traditional management techniques.

    I can't recommend this book enough.Even if you're great with kids already he has an interesting philosphy to check out.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Public Health Crisis
    All root canal-treated teeth are toxic, says the author. There are no exceptions. There will probably never be an effective way to disinfect dentin tubules. Extraction is the only remedy, plussurgical debridement of the socket to remove all infected bone. Otherwise,jaw cavitation--gangrene of the jaw--may occur. Shocking? Yes, of course, but facts must be faced. Cavitations are common, says the author, and very toxic.Panoramic X-rays can sometimes find them, but cannot rule them out.Ultrasound can find them better.

    The author once did dental implants, but now warns against them. They can cause serious problems, however well done. Better to avoid them entirely. Although titanium is relatively bio-compatible, it requires alloys that might not be.

    This book is technical, but understandable to intelligent lay readers. It is must reading for any dentist tired of saving the tooth but losing the patient. Dental toxicityis a public health crisis and the dental establishment needs to get with the program or get out of the way. Enough of unnecessary suffering!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Correlation is not causality
    Yes, there is a CORRELATION between periodontal and cardiac disease.That doesn't mean that one causes the other.Does eating ice cream make people wear shorts?Because when people are eating ice cream, they also tend to be wearing shorts more often.Or could it be that there's some THIRD FACTOR that causes both????Could it just be that, now I'm about to suggest something radical, but could it be that people who tend to neglect their health tend to have both periodontal and cardiac disease, and THAT's why they correlate?Think about.Don't go making stupid assumptions.Correlation is not causality.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Who would of guessed?
    Who would have ever guessed that dental disease could have such a signifigant part in so many illnesses? For far to long denistry and the rest of medicine have been totally seperate fields. What is going on in your mouth is seen as having little relavance to the disease conditions going on the in the rest of the body. For to long dental school training has focused on saving your teeth at any cost.

    "The Roots of Disease: Connecting Denistry andMedicine" was written by two men. One of these men is a dentist and the other a cadiologist. For over a decade these two health care professionals have witnessed that the removal and complete healing of infected dental sites can often result in the total healing (or at least vast improvement) of other diseases in the body.

    Have you ever been told that root canals harbor bacteria that infect the rest of your body causing diseae? That this is also true of sites where wisdom teeth have been improperly removed? I wasn't able to regain my health until my dental issues were dealt with. I no longer have a stressed out immune system and the constant candida albicans that this reulted in.

    This well written, thorough look at the health problems affeted by oral infection is a must read for anyone interested in obtaining optimal health.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Breaking with dentistry's omerta
    Tom Levy graduated from Johns Hopkins University, studied and taught medicine at Tulane, and then, to paraphrase his words, actually began to think about what he was doing.

    Most people do not understand that there are hardly any fields of medicine in which the best in the field don't believe things could be done a lot better, but run into institutional resistance which they can't overcome.Nor is this phenomenon limited to medicine.

    In this book, written together with Dr. Kulacz, a former instructor at NYU, they critique dentistry, and expose how antiquated and indeed antediluvian practices CAN cause much sickness.Not every root canal causes harm, but not every apparently healthy root canal is harmless.This is nothing new; it was known in Germany more than 40 years ago.When I brought this book to the attention of my dentist, a great dentist in his own right, he was very grateful for the ideas in it, and agreed that Levy and Kulacz's contention that painkillers that contain noradrenalin retard wound healing, and that you have to manually curette (scrape) out the mess under bad root canals made absolute sense.(Using a drill produces sufficient heat to kill more bone, which results in more rot.)

    That these claims are controversial is self-evident, and either suggests that they are wrong or that others do wish to acknowledge their findings.To my mind, Drs. Levy and Kulacz are every bit as much heros as the men on the first wave onto the Normandy Beaches on D-Day.

    Anyone with an inordinate interest in critiques of dental science - small crowd that we may be - does well to purchase this book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Thank God for this book!
    Thank God for this book and Dr.Kulacz! A M.D. from the Cleveland Clinic told me about Dr.Kulacz and this book. When reading this book about some of the other patients I thought I was reading about myself. This book is as truthful as it gets about root canals , dental materials and proper procedures about extractions. This book is a must read for the people that suspect that their teeth may be one of the culprits to their health issues. Of course after reading this book I would think most sensible people would not take drastic action as to extract their own teeth ,as one person posted. I would love to stand outside of every dentist office and pass out this book to patients that are about to get a root canal. This book opens your eyes to the other side of root canals that your dentist will not tell you before the procedure. By the way your natural teeth are not better if they are giving you pain and lowering your immune system. You must read this book if you are searching for the truth about your teeth problems. Dr.Kulacz has integrity and morals which is what you would expect from any doctor. If I could I would rate this book higher than a five. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Funny and original
    This is one of my favourite books as it is very funny and the concept is quite original.The book itself arrived in good time and in immaculate condition.Recommended for anyone who enjoys a good laugh and can relate to some of these "destinations" after travelling!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Some of the funniest stuff I've ever read
    This book is like a written version of Borat -- without the creepy stuff that, while funny, made one cringe at seeing it onscreen. This "guide" however, is virtually guilt-free. And incredibly funny. Most humor strikes me as amusing. I can appreciate it as funny, but not much really gets me to laugh. This book made me laugh out loud, sometimes uncontrollably, on almost every page.

    I don't get some of the critiques found here on Amazon. One reviewer scorned it as offensive to Eastern Europeans -- like the U.S. doesn't come in for mocking and satire at the hands of foreign writers. Another tries to shame the writers based on Eastern European involvement in the War on Terror -- obviously missing the difference between satire and propaganda.

    Some of the reviewers just didn't like the writing. There's no accounting for taste, I guess. All I can say is that this is one of the most brilliant satires I've ever read.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great gift!
    My brother in law is one of those annoying people who has everything and is content in life (go figure, lol) so he is EXTREMELY difficult to shop for. I almost think he finds amusement in the fact that people really have to work hard to get him something that is either a) useful or b) at least not utterly useLESS. When I saw this book, I just about did cartwheels because he is in dental school and has a great sense of humor. I figured this would be the PERFECT gift for him because he wouldn't expect it, he loves to travel, and could definitely appreciate the sort of over-the-top content. Definitely a good buy. :)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Funny
    Molvania is one of the most hilarious books that I have read. I started reading it after pensively reading War and Peace, and Union Moujik. So it was very relaxing.So if you don't laugh and gasp over it, then I don't think you have a fair sense of humor. True it is a one-joke parody. But if you find it offensive, think it over. The book isn't really about what it says, but actually it is about the way things are presented. It is just one hilarious and brilliant parody of a travel guide. Put yourself under a great deal of self-restraint when reading this book in public because your chuckles and guffaws might cause people to call an ambulance for you to be ferried away to a madhouse.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Funny, but...
    Funny, it is. This is good light reading. You can put it down easily and pick it again later. However, this is pretty much the same joke, over and over. It gets tiring after a short while. ... Read more
