Description

Perhaps no other advancement has altered the provision of dentistry than the development of safe and effective local anesthesia. Dental practitioners and patients have benefited from increasingly safe and effective agents for the control of surgical pain. In part one of the course, the history of local anesthetics is reviewed with a focus on the reasons why early solutions were inadequate, and what prompted the search for better agents. Four important pharmacological principles are discussed and the clinical relevance described: pKa, lipid solubility, protein binding, and vasodilatory activity. The maximum dosages and indications for currently available local anesthetic formulations are presented. Additional topics discussed are: safety of local anesthetics during pregnancy and lactation, and the signs and symptoms or local anesthetic overdose and strategies for management. In part two of the course, considerations for conventional inferior alveolar nerve block are discussed. Many factors can influence the success or failure of the IANB, and achieving consistent positive outcomes can be challenging. By reviewing local factors such as pH/pka, influence of fear and anxiety, and anatomic landmarks and variability, practitioners can gain confidence in their clinical knowledge and technique.
