I-2 A Milligram of Prevention is better than a Pound of ResuscitationProduct not yet rated Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Raymond A. Dionne, DDS, MS, PhD |The objective of this program is to review the evidence and rationale for minimizing adverse events associated with providing enteral sedation, and to present clinical strategies for effectively managing anxious patients with drugs that provide a wide margin of safety.
S-5 Anesthesia and Hemostasis in MicrosurgeryContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Nikita Ruparel, D.D.S., M.S., Ph.D. Local anesthetics is the first line of phamacological management of anesthesia in microsurgery. However, other means of anesthesia should be known.
NS-15 Tingle, Slur and Drool: Myths and Reality of Local Anesthesia and Pain ControlProduct not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s)
Speakers: Melissa Drum, D.D.S., M.S., Al Reader, D.D.S., M.S. We all start treatment with the intention of having profound anesthesia. However, patients may experience pain during treatment. This program focuses on the myths and reality of local anesthesia and successful management of endodontic pain. Important areas that will be examined are why anesthesia fails in mandibular teeth; the latest information on buffered lidocaine, articaine, preoperative analgesic medication for patients with irreversible pulpits including nitrous oxide; patient satisfaction; and how to integrate routine anesthesia with effective supplemental techniques. The objective is to consistently achieve profound anesthesia for your patients.
PB-10 Pain Control for the 'Hot' Mandibular Molar: The Endodontist's DilemmaContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Stanley F. Malamed, D.D.S. , This program will discuss WHY we encounter problems providing effective pain control in situations of acute infection and HOW we can best manage the situation. As fear is a big component of pain perception and response, we will look at various techniques of moderate sedation and their application in these situations.
BT-5 Update on PainContains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits
Speaker: Kenneth M. Hargreaves, D.D.S., Ph.D. This evidence-based course is designed to provide effective and practical strategies for managing acute dental pain emergencies. The latest information on NSAIDS, acetaminophen-containing analgesics and local anesthetics will be provided with the objective of having immediate application to your next patient emergency. Want to know how to anesthetize that hot tooth? How to predictably manage severe acute pain after surgical or endodontic treatments? How to combine common medications to improve analgesia? This course will answer these practical tips and more using a lecture style that emphasizes interactions with the audience in answering common pain problems with useful solutions.
Anesthetic Efficacy of Combination of 4% Prilocaine/2% Lidocaine with Epinephrine for the interior alveolar nerve BlockLContains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits
Authors: Olivia Cook, DMD, MS, John Nusstein, DDS, MS, Melissa Drum, DDS, MS, Sara Fowler, DMD, MS, Al Reader, DDS, MS, John Draper, PhD Prilocaine plain has a high pH and concentration (4%), which could decrease the pain of injection and increase success. The purpose of this study was to compare pain associated with anesthetic solution deposition and the degree of pulpal anesthesia obtained with the combination of prilocaine and lidocaine versus a lidocaine and lidocaine combination when used for inferior alveolar nerve blocks (IANBs).
Efficacy of Articaine versus Lidocaine as a Supplemental Buccal Infiltration in Mandibular Molars with Irreversible Pulpitis: A Prospective, Randomized, Double-blind StudyContains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits
Authors: Brandon S. Rogers, D.D.S., M.S.; Tatiana M. Botero, D.D.S., M.S.; Neville J. McDonald, B.D.S., M.S.; Richard J. Gardner, D.D.S., M.S.; Mathilde C. Peters, D.M.D., Ph.D. Profound pulpal anesthesia in mandibular molars with irreversible pulpitis (IP) is often difficult to obtain and often requires supplemental injections after an ineffective inferior alveolar nerve block (IANB). The purpose of this prospective, randomized, doubleblind study was to compare the efficacy of 4% articaine with 2% lidocaine for supplemental buccal infiltrations (BIs) after an ineffective IANB in mandibular molars with IP.
