Meth Mouth and Treatment Considerations
Noel Kelsch RDH, RDHAP, AS, BS
As dental health care professionals, it is vital to be aware of the illegal use of methamphetamines (MA).
MA has a direct effect on a person’s health, lifestyle, ability to function, and mental status. Unlike many other street drugs, the use of MA is on the rise. Dental professionals must have knowledge of the symptoms of use, possible side effects, drug interactions with medications, and dental treatment considerations. This course will aid in delivering appropriate dental treatment and patient education.
