“Clinical Manifestation of Hemoglobins S Disease and the Dental Patient”
Friday, March 26, 2021 9am – 12pm 3 CEUs
This seminar will guide the clinician regarding such patients with SCA who seek orthodontic treatment, dental implants and bone loss associated with periodontal disease. We will offer several references on multidisciplinary management of SCA.
The dental implications of SCA must be fully understood by the Dental Professional to successfully treat the SCA patient in your practice. Treatment should begin only after a thorough investigation has been performed on the patient’s background. Dental treatment such as orthodontics, dental implants and periodontal therapy should be carefully examined. Mucosal pallor, delayed eruption, dental hypoplasia and radiographic changes are common oral findings associated with the disease and often overlooked or missed entirely by the dental professional.
