|Stanley Malamed, DDS is a professor of anesthesia and medicine at the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry at the University of Southern California.
In this course, Dr. Malamed will present an in-depth discussion of the many aspects of this important area of daily dental practice. An important branch of research has been the development of new drugs, both local anesthetics as well as drugs to reverse soft-tissue anesthesia, and buffered local anesthetics, producing a more rapid onset, more comfortable injection, and more profound anesthesia. These and other areas of current research to improve pain control will be discussed.
- Describe the use of articaine by mandibular infiltration
- Learn the use of phentolamine mesylate as a local anesthesia reversal agent
- Discuss the importance of pH to local anesthesia comfort, onset of action, and profoundness
- Understand the use of buffered local anesthetics
