Learn about recent advances in local anesthesia and the repair of soft tissue injuries in the mouth and maxillofacial region.

Local Anesthesia Update
Recent advances in pharmacology have led to clinicians having multiple choices and options for administering local anesthetics. Currently clinicians must have an anesthesia plan often more complicated than the procedure plan. This seminar will focus on advances in local anesthesia and their applications and offer the opportunity for discussion among participating clinicians. Outline Neurophysiology of Local Anesthetic Action Anatomic Peripheral Nerve Components Propagation of a Noxious Impulse (Pain from dental pulp/periosteum) Local Anesthetic Options Drug formulations with Epinephrine (Epi), pH, and Buffering Effectiveness of Local Anesthetics with Local Inflammation Local Anesthetic Dosage and Nerve Cell Toxicity

The program provides a review of the repair of soft tissue injuries in the mouth and maxillofacial region.
