Emergencies can and do happen. Most dentists will, at some point in their career, be faced with an in-office emergency.Also the growing number of elderly patients seeking dental treatments such as implants and crown and bridge reconstruction may lead to increased medical emergencies in dentistry. These patients are typically more medically compromised, so dentists who treat these patients may see an increase in the number of medical emergencies.

Also includes a discussion of the importance of a thorough health history in dealing with medical emergencies, background information on emergencies, vitals and what should be included in office emergency equipment.
