Abstract

Patients with seizures tend to demonstrate a poor oral condition and gingival hyperplasia due to some antiepileptic drugs. Although most patients attain good control of their seizures with anticonvulsant drugs, seizures can occur during dental treatment for various reasons. Sedation can be recommended for anxiety control, and general anesthesia should be considered for uncooperative patient such as patients with intellectual disability or autism. The purpose of this case report was to describe the dental treatment for a patient with seizure history and intellectual disability under general anesthesia.
