Epilepsi og orale manifestationer

ABSTRACT

Fokusartikel Dato: 29.12.2015

Epilepsi er en kronisk neurologisk lidelse, der ofte vil kræve medicinsk behandling for at holde patienterne fri for anfald. Lidelsen kan have betydning for patientens psykosociale og kognitive udvikling, der indirekte kan have betydning for den orale sundhed. Derudover kan den antiepileptiske medicin have bivirkninger, som kan påvirke mundhulen, samt interagere med nogle af de mest anvendte præparater udskrevet fra tandlægepraksis.

Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disorder, medical treatment is often needed in order to keep the patients seizure-free. Epilepsy may have an impact on the psyco-social, and cognitive development, which indirectly can influence the oral health. Furthermore, the medication used to treat patients with epilepsy may have some side-effects affecting the oral cavity, and may interact pharmacologically with some of the mostly used drugs prescribed in the dental practise.
