NY-9DDS - WEBINAR - Cannabis, Dentistry and Anesthesia: What Do You Need to Know?

Cannabis, Dentistry and Anesthesia:  What Do You Need to Know?


Instructor: Konstantina S. Giesberg, D.D.S., D.A.D.B.A.
Board-certified Dentist Anesthesiologist.  Dr. Giesberg has provided sedation to both adult and pediatric dental patients.  She owns "Aspire Anesthesia", a mobile anesthesia practice that helps diverse patients, including patients with addictions and dental fears, to complete their dental treatment.  She is a Diplomate of the American Dental Board of Anesthesiology (DADBA).

Synopsis:  The Marihuana Regulation & Taxation Act (MRTA) was signed on March 31, 2021, legalizing adult-use cannabis (recreational marijuana) in New York State, making the state one of the nineteen states that have legalized medical and recreational marijuana and one of the thirty-nine states that have legalized medical cannabis.  Forty-four percent of Americans now have access to legal recreational cannabis.  Furthermore, the use of cannabinoid products has exploded over recent years.  Dentists are increasingly likely to encounter patients with a history of cannabis use that may impact patients' oral care and their dental treatment.  Therefore, for safety and quality successful outcomes, dentists need to consider these potential effects on general public health, relate these concerns and alter dental treatment, as well as anesthetic plans, accordingly.  The focus of this lecture is to bring light to the detrimental versus the beneficial properties of cannabinoid products, and to highlight the possible considerations and implications in dentistry and anesthesia.
