This lecture is designed for anyone who wishes to expand their understanding of the newest pharmacologic agents and delivery techniques of local anesthesia. A range of new anesthesia products, some already available and some still in development, will be presented, including needle-free delivery of local anesthetics such as nasal inhalation, compounded topical anesthetics, buffering of anesthetics, and anesthetic-reversal agents.
Participants will learn:
- The common causes of local anesthesia failures and how to better overcome them.
- How to achieve more effective and predictable anesthesia for any dental treatment procedure.
- The science behind new anesthetics and techniques that are now available in the dental marketplace or that are currently being researched, as nasal inhalation, buffering, reversal agents, iontophoresis.
- How to apply the latest anesthetic agent technology to your daily practice and describe new trends in achieving profound patient comfort.
