PAIN CONTROL: From Current Therapy to NextGen Analgesics
Objectives of the Seminar:
1. Describe a fast and efficient routine for managing dental pain emergency patients
2. Select the best combination of analgesics to manage dental pain
3. Describe new areas of pain research
Synopsis of the seminar - This evidence-based seminar is designed to provide effective and practical strategies for managing acute dental pain emergencies. The latest information on NSAIDS, acetaminophen-containing analgesics and local anesthetics will be provided with the objective of having immediate application to your next patient emergency. In addition, we will discuss the discovery of “endo-capsaicins” and the role they play in mediating acute and chronic pain. Discovery of these oxidized lipids has led to the development of novel classes of analgesic drugs.
