While tobacco use has decreased over the years, nicotine remains an addictive drug with a greater effect on the central nervous system (CNS) than caffeine, cocaine, or amphetamines. As a dental professional providing oral sedation to nicotine users – whether smoking, vaping, or dipping – it’s important to evaluate the usage and frequency to ensure a safe and comfortable experience for the patient.

Dr. Anthony Feck will share the assessment tools, risk, and treatment, based on the individual patient’s nicotine use. You’ll learn that the intensity of nicotine cravings can be more powerful than the sedation medications being administered, and how to instruct the patient accordingly on their use prior to treatment.    This online course is worth 1 CE.
