Dr. Rajul Vivek
2016 Journal of Medical Science And clinical Research  
Epilepsy, which is characterized by the risk of recurrent seizures, is a chronic disease. Dentists with a thorough knowledge of seizure disorders and the medications used to treat them can provide necessary dental and oral health care to these patients. In this review, we summarize current knowledge of epilepsy, seizures and antiepileptic drugs and provide information on dental-related issues, as well as guidelines for the management of an acute seizure in the dental office.
