With the ever-increasing supply of cocaine and use of "crack," the potent and smokeable form of cocaine, the dangers of cocaine abuse, with its high morbidity and mortality, have become recognized. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons may frequently and unknowingly be treating patients who use cocaine, and, therefore, they must be educated about cocaine-related problems and be prepared to deal with the complications. This article discusses the nature of cocaine, its pharmacology, systemic affects, the oral manifestations of cocaine abuse, and recommended clinical management of the patient.
