In urgent and emergent settings, patients with acute pain of oral/dental origin are commonly encountered. While a dentist may not be immediately available and analgesics may help manage pain until dental care may be accessed, emergency physicians can manage such pain effectively without the use of prescription opioid analgesics by administering nerve blocks and regional injections of local anesthesia. In the wake of the opioid crisis, it is essential for all healthcare professionals to work together in reducing the overall opioid prescriptions filled for acute pain management.
Participants will be trained to recognize the most common symptoms of dental pain in patients and delivery of local anesthesia for acute pain management. This workshop will provide the participants with an understanding of head and neck anatomy as pertains to oral and facial injections, recognize the most common dental conditions that cause pain, and manage acute pain using local anesthetics and non-opioid analgesics.
Course Objectives: Head and neck anatomy, dental blocks, risks and benefits of dental blocks
