January 15, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

Download Course Slides (in PDF format 5 mb)

Local anesthesia forms the backbone of pain control techniques in-contemporary dental practice. The subject of pain control in dentistry has undergone a recent
renewal of interest, a renaissance. In this program Doctor Malamed will present an in-depth discussion of the many aspects of this important area of daily dental practice.

A major area of interest has been in the development of new local anesthetics, such as articaine, as well as the development; the soon- to-be released local anesthetic nasal mist (Kovanest) for maxillary anesthesia; the introduction of a drug to reverse soft tissue anesthesia – phentolamine mesylate and buffered local anesthetics, producing a more rapid onset, more comfortable injection and more profound anesthesia. These and other areas of current research into improving pain control will be discussed.

Local anesthetics are the safest & most effective drugs in medicine for the prevention & management of pain – when used correctly.
