Many anesthesiologists aren't familiar identifying problems with teeth, surrounding tissues, and intraoral prostheses, and documentation of the exam or injury, when it occurs, is often not included in the EMR. Anesthesiologists need to recognize problems with patient dentition; teeth, surrounding tissues, and intraoral prostheses. They also need to better advise patients, preoperatively, about the risks of dental trauma and employ strategies to reduce the risk of dental injuries to patients.
