Essentials of Pharmacology for Dentistry

by KD Tripathi

Pharmacology is the branch of medicine concerned with the uses, effects, and modes of action of drugs. The practice of dentistry utilizes drugs both as a primary treatment modality as well as facilitator of/adjuvant to dental procedures. This book “Essentials of Pharmacology for Dentistry” is divided into three sections and consists of total 37 chapters. The first section describes the general pharmacological principles with which all professionals involved in drug therapy must be conversant. The second section focuses on systemic pharmacology, and presents a brief account of drugs acting on various organ systems and used in the treatment of common disorders affecting these systems. Each chapter is organised systematically. The opening sentence defines the class of drugs, followed by their classification presented in chart form for better pictorial impression and easy remembrance. The ‘prototype’ approach is followed by describing the representative drug of the class. Matters particularly relevant to dental therapeutics have been highlighted by italicizing. Wherever applicable, the implications in dentistry are prominently elaborated, e.g. drugs and diseases affecting postextraction haemostasis, dental procedures in patients on corticosteroid therapy or in diabetics, oral complications of cancer chemotherapy, conscious sedation in dentistry, etc. The third section covers antimicrobials and other drugs which the dentists prescribe or administer themselves. All chapters present in this edition have been thoroughly updated to include the latest information and new drugs, while nonrelevant material has been deleted.
