In a previous episode of Medical History Mysteries, we talked about street drugs and how there are so many substances that can be mixed into them. It can be extremely dangerous for patients not only to take these drugs but also to mix them with the medications that dental professionals administer.
Marijuana isn’t just green leafy material that you roll up and smoke anymore. Enter waxes, dabs, and oils. Join us as we talk about the various concentrated extracts of the cannabis plant and their dental implications and systemic risks. As always, we must carefully check medical histories, ask the right questions, and make clinical decisions accordingly.
