Prosthodontics in emergencies.

Attention: open in a new window. Print


1.Topicality:In modern dental practice the issues of adverse events (emergency conditions)remain topical. Complexity of the problem is related to specific characteristics of outpatient reception. Maxillofacial region is a powerful reflexogenic zone andneedsadequate anesthesia supplement, which is not always achieved.Therefore, patients aafraidtobestomatologically interventedwhich increases sensitivity to pain. There are changes in the nervous and hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal system, that reveal adverse reactions.

2.Workshop objectives

4. Topic contents :Risk factors of some common somatic diseases

(byE. V.Zoryan with co-authors, 1997)

1. Heart failure.Increased secretion of adrenaline as a result of stress reactionboth use of adrenaline as part of anesthesia medicines may lead to to acute cardiac decompensation. For patientsthattakecardiac glycosides, adrenaline can trigger cardiac arrhythmias. Incaseofdisturbedcirculation, development of necrotic processes in the mouth ispossible evenwhentraumatism andquantityofstomatologicalinterventionwasslight.Prevention: perform outpatient dental intervention withpatientfeelingsatisfactory, in other cases provide assistance only in a hospital. With clearly marked heart failure with the threat of decompensation (shortness of breath at rest) the possibility of dental treatment is to be decided with a the patient's doctor therapist. Be careful when choosing a medication for pain relief (use local anesthetic without epinephrine or with a minimum of its contents).

2. Coronary heart disease.Fear or pain during dental intervention or use of adrenaline in solutions of local anesthetic, may provoke an attack of angina and the development of myocardial infarction.Prevention:If the patient's condition is unstable (precordial pain orpain behind the breastbone is calm), dental treatment is to be decided with a the patient's doctor therapist.. if necessary, give the patient a usually dose of nitrate. It is reasonable to do drug training with sedatives before treatment. When doing local anesthesia use themedications, thatdon’tcontainadrenalineor use vasopressinand felipressin asavasoconstrictor in local anesthetics. Injecttheanestheticnomorethan1 carpule(1,8 ml). control the level of blood pressure duringtreatment.After patient's acute myocardial infarction during the first six months because of the risk of relapse to held only urgent dental intervention in the hospital with anesthesiologist and cardiologist.

3. Cardiac arrhythmia (disturbance of frequency and rhythm of heartbeats). in case of tachycardia, stress or the use of anesthesia solutions, containing adrenaline, may cause a heart failure. If patient hasbradycardia, use of local anesthetic may provoke the a complete atrioventricular block.Prevention.Beforedentaltreatmentoneshoudcheckthepatient’spulse, measurehisbloodpressure, conductdrugpreparationwithsedativesand provide an adequate anesthesia with anesthetics that do not contain adrenaline.If the patient's heart rate is below 50 beats per minute and there is an atrial fibrillation, extrasystoles, the choice of anesthesia should be chosen after consulting a therapist.

4. Hypertension (consistently high BP,  systolic pressure over 145-160 mm or diastolic over 95 mm of mercury). While being treated by a dentist,the patient may experience a hypertensive crises or acute heart failure. Prevention. Providepremediactionwithsedatives, regulateBPwiththehelpofmedicines, an adequate anesthesia with anesthetics that do not contain adrenaline. Ifnecessaryoneshouldusepreparations that contain adrenaline in concentration of 1:200000 (UltrakainDS) andlowerwith precautions for intravascular injection (aspiration test). 

5. Hypotension.DecreasedBP (systole is less than110mm for men and 100 mm for Women, diastole is less than 65 mm.).During the dental intervention one may experience fainting, collapse, shock and use of sedatives could further reduce BP.Prevention.Beforethetreatmentwithmedication, adjust blood pressure, inject atropine sulfate 0,1% or metatsyn sulfate 0.1%up to1 ml depending on heartbeat rate and BP. All dental manipulation aretobedoneafterlayingthepatienthorizontally. While trating one must control patient’s blood pressure.

6. Bronchial asthma.During the dental intervention one can have an asthma attack.because of excitement. Medicationsandmaterialswithwith strong smell maycausebronchospasm. Prevention. Consultation by theraputist. Detailed history taking to identify allergens,that provoke bronchospasm. On the day of treatment recommend the patient to take commonly used medications і bring an appropriate medical nebulizer or inhaler. Local anesthesia is thepreffered type of anesthesia. With heightened sensitivity to Sulphite neveruselocal painkillers withvasoconstrictor because of the fact that they contain bisulfite as a preservativeof vasoconstrictor. Do not use acetylsalicylic acid (The danger of so-called "aspirin asthma")and other medications, that provoke bronchospasm (morphine, indomethacin).

7. Allergic conditions.Patientsthatturntothedentistoftenhaveallergic reactions in theirmedicalhistory, including the ones on local painkillers. Themostfrequenttypesofalergesareallergies to local anesthetics (especially groups ofesters likenovocaine), and the ones that are preservatives in carpules, vials (Parabens, sodium bisulfite, etc.). Moreover, allergic reactions can becausedbyantibiotics, sera, dental materials etc.On contacting the allergen an allergic reaction brakes out until development of anaphylactic shock.Prevention.Careful history taking to identify allergic reactions. Particular attention should be given to patients, thatsufferfromallergic and infectious-allergic diseases (rheumatism, collagens, asthma, eczema, etc.) Don’t use the medications that were spotted to cause allergic reactions. If necessary, send the patient for the consultation to the allergy diagnostic department. Useantigіstamіnnі drugs or hormonal agents (prednisolone, hydrocortisone)aspremedication.

8. Anticoagulationtherapy.Incasethepatienthasaincreased tendency to clot (inpresenceofangina, vascular prostheses, heart valves, etc.) inordertoto prevent thrombosis, the ability of blood to clo is reduced by drugs Heparin, antagonists of vitamin D.).After the operation (Incision, tooth extraction, etc.) bleeding, hematoma formation may appear.Prevention.Pall attention to blood (duration of bleeding, clotting time, etc.).. If the basic parameters of blood coagulation are of appropriate limits, then, after consultation with the therapist, the patient can have tooth extraction, incision of abscess. More complex operations need to be performed only in stationary conditions after correction of clotting. Exclude medications that increase the effects of anticoagulants (Aspirin, fenilbutazon, macrolides and tsefalosporyns).

9. Епілепсія.An attackof convulsive syndrome can occur in a stressful situationas a result of using local anesthetics.Prevention.Careful history taking to identify convulsive attacks.consultation with the therapistof the patient. On the day of treatment at the dentists the patient ought to takethemedications that he usually needs. Do drug training with sedatives before treatment. Incaseofoftenepilepticseizuresdental interference is to be done during the period of the least density of attacks in a multidisciplinary hospital with resuscitator-anesthesiologist, neurologist. Itisrecommendedtouselocallocal anesthetics of Articaine group (ultrakainDS ultrakainDS-forte, septanest) as they are the most effective.

10. Glaucoma.Adrenaline expands the apple and can trigger an acute attack. Prevention. Local anesthetic drug should not contain adrenaline. For composition of sedation avoid atropine and other M-cholino blockers.

11. Diabetes.dentist must remember the possibility of such patients getting into coma. This may be due to release a large number of blood adrenaline, insulin, which is an antagonist that leads to the development of hyperglycemic coma After surgery, as a result ofangiopathy, reduction of immunological properties of the bodyoccur, observed slow wound healing and development of infection. AsaresultofDisseminated intravascular coagulation diabetics are observed to have early and late bleeding after surgery.Prevention.Before dental interventions of patients with diabetes an advice of endocrinologist is needed.Attentionshouldbepaidonblood and urine analysis concerning sugar. On the day of treatment the patient is  recommended to take commonly used antidiabetic drugs. All dental manipulation are to be done in the morning in1-2 hoursaftermealandinsulineinjection. Dentist needs to know the pecularities of this group of patients (thoroughchoice of tranquilizers for sedation, a good psychological climate at the reception, etc.).For local anesthetic Use drugs without epinephrine or those containing a vasoconstrictor substance, noradrenaline or felipressin. Duringthepostpostoperative prescribe means of chemotherapy to prevent infection, which in turn can cause glucosuria and lead to the development of coma. For patients with decompensated diabetics urgent dental intervention are held only in hospital.

12. Thyrotoxicosis.Thepatientswiththispathologyareextremelysensitivetostressandpain.As a resulteven tooth removal may cause a worsening thyrotoxicosis with the development of thyroid crisis, coma with complete loss of consciousness. Becauseof thyrotoxicosis dysfunction of other endocrine glands is possible, First of all it is adrenocortical function. This can lead to hypocorticism  and patient's death even with dental intervention.Prevention.Together with the endocrinologist before dental treatment cut off or significantly weaken thyrotoxicosis using medications do drug preparation with sedatives (aminazin 5% - 1 ml intramuscularly or sybazon 0.005 2 times a day inside). Suchpatientsaresensitivetoadrenalin, that’s why it should ne excluded from anesthetic solutions.

13. Hypothyroidism.Patientstendtohavecomplications(colds, secondary infections during surgical intervention). Asaresultofthefactthatduringhypothyroidism the function of other endocrine glands gets disrupted (especially adrenal), inadequate reaction to dental intervention is possibleand cab even lead to death. Prevention. Mandatory consultation with endocrinologist. in case of  affected forms of hypothyroidism dental intervention should be done in hospital together with complex treatment of this decease. Multiple tooth removing is not recommended.
