Oral health care considerations for patients with arthritis:

  • Use antibiotic prophylaxis for patients with total joint replacements.
  • Use the glucocorticosteroid replacement protocol for patients with glucocorticosteriod-induced adrenal suppression.
  • Before prescribing analgesics to a patient, address the patient’s present medications to avoid adverse events associated with NSAID toxicity.
  • Address possible medication-induced oral dryness.
  • Any dental treatment plan needs to address a patient’s ability to achieve adequate oral hygiene and the dexterity necessary to place and remove full and removable partial dentures.
