Anesthesia & Sedation


Intranasal Local Anesthesia for Maxillary Non-Molar Teeth
Member Price: $0.00
CE Credit(s): 1
Retail Price: $0.00
Course Created on: 04/24/2017

Local anesthesia (LA) forms the backbone of pain control techniques in dentistry. The receipt of a LA injection is, unfortunately, the most traumatic part of the dental procedure for most patients. Trypanophobia (fear of needles) is estimated to be present in ~10% of the world’s population. Fainting during LA injection is, far and away, the most common medical emergency encountered in dentistry. The ability to obtain profound pulpal anesthesia for restorative dental procedures without injection will enable a dentist to provide comfortable, safe and effective treatment to many needle-phobic persons who previously avoided seeking dental care.

An intranasal local anesthetic mist – a combination of tetracaine HCl and oxymetazoline – has been developed that provides pulpal anesthesia to the maxillary non-molar teeth. In this program Dr. Malamed will discuss the problem of needle-phobia as well as the development and efficacy of this new intranasal local anesthetic mist.
