Successful Management of Acute Dental Pain
This evidence-based course is designed to provide effective and practical strategies for managing acute dental pain emergencies. The latest information on NSAIDS, acetaminophen-containing analgesics and local anesthetics will be provided with the objective of having immediate application to your next patient emergency. Want to know how to anesthetize that hot tooth? How to predictably manage severe acute pain after surgical or endodontic treatments? How to combine common medications to improve analgesia? This course will answer these practical tips and more using a lecture style that emphasizes interactions with the audience in answering common pain problems with useful solutions.
Course Objectives: At the completion of this course, the practitioner should be able to:
- Describe a fast and efficient routine for managing dental pain emergency patients
- Select the best combination of analgesics to manage dental pain that avoid or minimize the need for opioids
- Provide effective local anesthesia to the classic “hot” molar case
