Prophylactic Antibiotic Use in Dental Patients with Prosthetic Joints: What is the Evidence?

The 2014 Council of Scientific Affairs panel review of the evidence failed to find an association between dental procedures and prosthetic joint infection, concluding that prophylactic antibiotic use is generally not recommended prior to dental procedures. This course will explore why this clinical recommendation should be integrated with the practitioner's professional judgment and the patient's needs and preferences. Additionally, information pertaining to the appropriate-use criteria on prophylactic antibiotic use in dental patients with prosthetic joints will be presented.
