Description

While dental practitioners want patients to be comfortable, it is evident that better anesthetic techniques must be used to ensure that dental treatment is indeed pain free. This course reviews the most common anesthetic techniques beginning with mandibular nerve locks and proceeding to maxillary blocks. It familiarizes the reader with medical conditions that affect anesthetic choices, methods and techniques to ensure patient comfort during injections, the importance and rational behind needle aspirations, proper injection technique, common barriers to local anesthetic success, and alternatives to traditional local anesthetic for controlling pain.
