6 Common Myths Explained to Make Your Local Anesthetic Techniques More Successful

Course Description

Achieving profound and effective local anesthesia is essential in clinical practice. It is a limiting step in most procedures; meaning invasive procedures cannot commence until it is successfully achieved.

Despite the frequency that oral health providers (ie, dentists and hygienists) use local anesthetics during clinical practice, misconceptions remain. The goal of this presentation is to discuss several common ‘myths’ surrounding local anesthesia while incorporating literature-supported learning issues.

This course will review and update local anesthetic techniques, equipment, and current research for all providers.
