Local anesthesia forms the backbone of pain control in dentistry. The instructor will present an in-depth discussion of the many aspects of this critical part of dental practice. An important area of research has been the development of new drugs, such as articaine, as well as the local anesthesia reversal agent? phentolamine mesylate; buffered local anesthetics ? producing a more rapid onset, more comfortable injection and more profound anesthesia; and a nasal local anesthetic mist?which provides needle-less anesthesia to maxillary non-molar teeth.
