Dental Management of Patients with Seizure Disorders – 1 Hour



Patients with seizure disorders require special considerations when planning and implementing dental care. The use of medications to manage seizure disorders can impact oral and gingival health, and dental providers must be aware of other methods of seizure management. Additionally, seizures may cause ambulatory unsteadiness, and the potential for oral and dental trauma should not be overlooked. The Dental Management of Patients with Seizure Disorders course will cover the clinical implications of seizure disorders on dental care and the treatment considerations that dental providers should be aware of to ensure appropriate management and care for patients with seizure disorders.

Upon completion of the Dental Management of Patients with Seizure Disorders course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the different types of seizure disorders and how they may impact dentition and oral health
  • Describe the impact that seizure disorders have on oral and dental health
  • Identify important information to gather in the medical history in preparation for dental care
  • Assess patient risk for dental trauma from seizures
  • Recommend treatment methods to limit dental trauma/ displacement of oral prostheses for patients with seizures
