Adrenal insufficiency and crisis

Are you a dental professional looking to improve your knowledge and understanding of adrenal insufficiency and crisis, and its potential impact on oral health? If so, this course is the perfect opportunity for you.

This module looks in detail at Addison's disease and how to manage it in the dental setting, including steroid dose adjustments for dental procedures.

An adrenal crisis is unlikely to occur in a dental practice setting, but the team should know how to reduce the risk, and recognise and manage it if it happens.

Adrenal insufficiency is a condition in which the adrenal glands do not produce enough of the hormones cortisol and aldosterone. This can have a number of potential effects on oral health, including dry mouth, altered taste, and increased risk of infection. As a dental professional, it is important to be aware of the potential impact of adrenal insufficiency on your patients and to take steps to provide appropriate care and support.

Adrenal crisis is a potentially life-threatening medical condition requiring immediate emergency treatment. It is a set of symptoms that indicate severe adrenal insufficiency caused by low levels of the hormone cortisol.

Our course on the importance of adrenal insufficiency and crisis to dentistry is designed to provide dental professionals with a comprehensive understanding of this condition and its potential effects on oral health. The course covers a range of topics, including the causes and symptoms of adrenal insufficiency, the impact of the condition on oral health, and strategies for diagnosing and managing adrenal crisis in the dental practice.

Our course on the importance of adrenal insufficiency and crisis to dentistry is a valuable opportunity for dental professionals who want to improve their knowledge and understanding of this condition and its potential impact. By participating in this course, you will gain valuable knowledge and skills that you can apply in your practice. Don't miss this opportunity – sign up today for immediate access!
