Abstract

Some dental professionals may have concerns about treating patients who have seizure disorders. The authors contend that increased knowledge about seizures and how to manage them may make dental professionals more comfortable. This article reviews the various seizure types, discusses commonly used anticonvulsants and their side effects and outlines some special concerns dentists may have in providing care to these patients.
