Many dental patients are receiving long-term systemic corticosteroid therapy. Such therapy may have a profound effect upon risk of infection, wound healing, and ability to handle stress. A discussion of the adverse effects that may accompany corticosteroid therapy is followed by guidelines for mangement of the patient receiving such medication and requiring dental therapy.
