This course will detail the role that pH plays in the biochemistry of local anesthetic and the ability of a standard dental anesthetic injection to provide the analgesia necessary for all dental procedures. It will also introduce technology that allows dental practioners to neutralize standard dental anesthetic cartridges chairside, overcoming the delay and uncertainty inherent with acidic local anesthetic, allowing the dental office to take control of their schedules. A novel ex-vivo alkalization (buffering) system will be described. The role buffering anesthetic plays in defining the future of local anesthesia in dentistry will be thoroughly discussed.
