Dental Management of the Pregnant Patient is the first book to focus on treating dental patients during pregnancy. Offering an in–depth survey of the physiological changes that occur during pregnancy, the book provides the reader with a thorough understanding of how these changes affect dental treatment and planning. Also covering potential medical and gynecological emergencies that may occur while a pregnant patient is under the dentist′s care, this book is an indispensable resource for any dental practitioner seeing pregnant patients.

The book encompasses all topics relevant to dental management and disease during pregnancy, from medications and anesthetics to tumors, BLS, and ACLS in pregnancy. It covers the ethical issues that surround treating pregnant patients, as well as all the effects of prevention and treatment on the mother and child during pregnancy and lactation.

  • The first book to compile all of the knowledge for managing pregnant patients into a single source
  • Offers a comprehensive approach to the physiological changes in pregnancy, clinical considerations for treating pregnant patients, and discussion of medical emergencies
  • Covers medications, oral disease, tumors, trauma, management of gynecological emergencies, and more

Dental Management of the Pregnant Patient is an essential text for general dentists, dental students, dental hygiene students, dental hygienists, dental faculty, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, and specialized dentists in other disciplines of dentistry. This book could also be a useful reference source for physicians in the practice of general and family medicine.
