Patients commonly report fear or dread related to dental anesthesia—they either fear the injection itself, or they report that the anesthetic did not completely alleviate the pain of the procedure. This two-part presentation will cover advances in anesthetic agents and armamentarium, review of pertinent anatomy and pharmacology, and troubleshooting complications and anesthetic failures.

Session 1- The first session of this presentation will review clinically relevant pharmacology and anatomy critical to the safe and effective administration of local anesthesia. Alternate techniques that may be employed in certain specific clinical contexts will also be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review and apply pertinent pharmacology and anatomy relative to local anesthesia administration
  • Maximize efficiency and safety in the administration of local anesthesia

Session 2- This session builds upon the foundation material presented in ​first and attendees are strongly encouraged to participate in both sessions. ​Session 2 focuses on the recognition and avoidance of complications, troubleshooting anesthetic failures and newer concepts in local anesthesia administration—including but not limited to buffering agents, alternate delivery mechanisms, and an approach to the patient with reported allergy to local anesthesia. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Maximize efficiency and safety in the administration of local anesthesia 
  • Integrate newer concepts and techniques in local anesthesia administration 
  • Recognize and manage complications associated with local anesthesia administration
