Patients' perception of pain, the primitive tools that the dental clinician utilizes to assess and diagnose, and the understanding of pulpal pathosis sometimes make it difficult to determine the origin of dental pain. It is important to understand how pulpal pain manifests itself and to deal with it accordingly. This course will teach the basic principles of pulpal pathosis and its relation to dental pain and share treatment and management options for acute dental emergencies.

After this course, you will be able to:

  • Identify perceived dental pain and its correlation to pulpal pathosis
  • Recognize pulpal deterioration and determine any and all treatment modalities
  • Determine when usage of pharmaceuticals and appropriate treatment is indicated
