Share Abstract:

The patient with hypertension

Catherine K. Riley, DDS, MS/Geza T. Terezhalmy, DDS, MA

Pages: 671-690

In the United States, it is estimated that there may be as many as 58 million people with hypertension; fewer than 5% of these cases have a curable cause.

To provide competent care to patients with hypertension, clinicians must understand the disease, its treatment, and its impact on the patientís ability to undergo and respond to dental care.
