Local Anesthesia – Mythbusters Edition!

April 25, 2019
8:30 am โ€“ 11:30 am
  • Jason Goodchild, D.M.D.

Achieving profound and effective local anesthesia is essential in clinical practice. It is a limiting step in most procedures; meaning invasive procedures cannot commence until it is successfully achieved. Despite the frequency that oral health providers use local anesthetics during clinical practice, misconceptions remain. The goal of this presentation is to discuss several common ‘myths’ surrounding local anesthesia while incorporating literature-supported learning issues. This course will review and update local anesthetic techniques, equipment and current research for all providers.

Learning Objectives:
1) Discuss current local anesthetic market share in the U.S.
2) Review the basic pharmacology of local anesthetics.
3) Discuss common ‘myths’ associated with local anesthesia.
4) Review the armamentarium of local anesthetic delivery.

Course Number: T1912
