High Blood Pressure


It is important to identify hypertensive patients before starting a dental treatment, because the stress and the anxiety associated with our procedures can raise blood pressure to dangerous levels, which could result in stroke or myocardial infarction. It is also important to detect the hypertensive patient to avoid the use of procedures such as the use of certain vasoconstrictors, for example in the control of gingival bleeding during the impression procedure for fixed prosthesis. The first task of the dentist is to identify the patients that have high blood pressure through the medical history and by measuring their blood pressure.
