The Dentist’s Drug and Prescription Guide is written for dental professionals seeking quick advice on prescribing medications for their patients. Using an easy to read question-and-answer format, Dr. Weinberg describes evidenced based pharmacologic therapy with current and up-to-date references regarding adjunctive pharmacologic treatment of the dental patient. Drug therapy for each dental discipline including periodontics, implantology, oral surgery, and endodontics is included, with recommendations for pharmacologic treatment with periodontal and implant surgery as well as treatment of periodontal diseases, dental pain, and infections.
