EWL-11 Oral Conscious Sedation for the Endodontist

4.5 (8 votes)

CE Hours: 1.5 CE hour 

The most common reason patients seek dental care is pain, while the most common reason patients avoid dental care is anxiety. Conscious sedation is an effective adjunct to providing pain-free care, and a solution to dental anxiety. Arguably, no other specialty in dentistry could benefit more than endodontics, yet as a specialty, endodontists use oral conscious sedation less than any other discipline. Oral conscious sedation by general dentists is no longer a fringe service, but a standard of care provided by referring dentists to the endodontist. Therefore, for multiple reasons, the endodontist should be able to efficiently and effectively provide this service in their practice. This course will introduce the endodontist to safe and effective conscious sedation, and update the experienced provider with some of the latest information in this rapidly evolving field.

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  • List the main advantages to providing oral conscious sedation in their practice.
  • Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of different forms of sedation administration.
  • Discuss the legal and regulatory requirements of performing dentistry with sedation in their state/province.
