Abstract

In a rapidly aging society, many patients will have multiple medical co-morbidities and on polypharmacy. Dental patients rarely have medical emergencies during their treatment and it is because of this rarity, that the odd emergency that presents can overwhelm the dentist’s ability to cope despite their theoretical knowledge. The authors discuss how to adapt the clinic facilities for managing an emergency and provide an overview of management of common emergencies that dentists may encounter.
