Green Dentistry: THC and teeth?

What you need to know about cannabis and oral health.

  • This course is for doctors, hygienists, assistants, and front office staff.  Marijuana is the most commonly used recreational drug in the United States.  23 states currently have some form of legalized marijuana; eight states have legalized it for recreational use.  It is estimated that over 10% of the US population uses it at least once a month. This course will be an unbiased and evidence based presentation of marijuana and it's role in dentistry.  An introduction to the usage of marijuana in the general public population will first be discussed.  Second, will be about the pharmacology of marijuana.  In the third part of this course you will learn how the use of marijuana by your patients affects their dental care.

At the conclusion of the course the participants will:

  • Understand the pharmacology and pharmacokinetics of marijuana
  • Understand how marijuana usage by patients effects their oral health; specific focus on oral pathology, caries risk, and periodontal disease
  • Understand interactions of THC with commonly used prescribed medications and be familiar with medical emergencies related to THC
