Chemical Dependency and Addiction: Implications to the Dental Practice

Dr. Aviv Ouanounou | 3 CE

The problem of substance abuse has emerged as a major issue in society and has become an area of major focus for healthcare professionals. Statistically, more than 20 million Americans are affected by substance abuse, which includes the use of alcohol and other drugs, including prescribed medications. In this course, we will discuss alcohol and the various drugs of abuse and their mechanism of action. We will review modifications in dental treatment that may be necessary when treating a patient who is chemically dependent or recovering from chemical dependency. Finally, we will review the drugs used in dentistry and their potential interactions with these drugs of abuse.

Cannabis and Implications for Clinical Dental Practice

Dr. Jose Lanca | 3 CE

Cannabis is a commonly used drug with significant adverse effects and potential for abuse and dependence. Its therapeutic use for specific medical conditions – including neuropathic pain, spasticity in multiple sclerosis, analgesia in cancer patients and prevention of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting - has been approved by Health Canada. Considering the recent legislative changes for the non-medical use of cannabis, it is expected that its use, adverse effects and risks will become more frequent. Therefore, it is important for healthcare professionals to increase awareness of the organization of the endocannabinoid system, cannabinoid exposure and implications for systemic and oral health.
