Price: $53.00
Duration: 8 Hours

This course reviews the development of antimicrobials and their place in dentistry. The goal is to enable you to select appropriate antibiotics in terms of potency against oral pathogens and to balance that potency against possible toxicity and hypersensitivity reactions. You'll learn to classify antibiotics according to their effect on target pathogens and range of activity so that you will quickly bring odontogenic infections under control. Refresh your knowledge of penicillin and the best alternatives when penicillin cannot be prescribed. Be prepared to recognize when antifungal agents are required. Finally, you'll be prepared to manage patients who need antibiotic prophylaxis for endocarditis and those who are taking antibiotics prescribed for medical conditions. The world of microbes can affect dental treatment. After taking this course, you can be confident in your ability to conquer that world.
