The intended audience for this event includes:

Pain control is central to enabling clinicians to provide dental treatment and to reduce the suffering of patients. In the last century, there has been a tremendous increase in our understanding of pain and how it is mediated. This has progressively led to the availability of a wider range of techniques and drugs to minimise or eliminate pain.

This course examines these different techniques and drugs and gives the dentist the opportunity to actually perform advanced local anaesthetic techniques.

Pain control is central to the practice of dentistry. There is no procedure in dentistry that will earn your patient’s gratitude more than effectively controlling their pain.

  • The pharmacology and prescribing of analgesics in the Dental Office:
    • Paracetamol
    • NSAIDS
    • Opioids
