DESCRIPTION: The ability to render root canal treatment in a comfortable, pain-free manner represents the benchmark of modern endodontic treatment. It is the single variable for which patients measure our clinical competency and skill. This course is designed to help you eliminate those unwanted distractions and interruptions resulting from ineffective or inadequate anesthesia. In this short, three-part series, Dr. Nudera breaks down all you need to know about our local anesthetics and the steps we need to take in order to achieve the profound anesthesia we need and our patients expect.
NuEndo CASE EPISODES
Welcome to Dr. Nudera's Office!
Learning how to practice endodontics is more than just shaping and filling canals--it's understanding the process and how to manage the entire patient experience. See how techniques are applied to real cases. These 45-60 minute videos are released monthly.
MODULE 1: BASIC LOCAL ANESTHETIC
In this section, Dr. Nudera discusses the three most common types of local anesthetic he uses for root canal treatment. Begin to understand the onset and duration of these solutions, as well as Dr. Nudera's recommended administration protocol per tooth type.
MODULE 2: ANESTHESIA TESTING
Confirmation of anesthesia before initiating treatment is critical to ensure our patient's comfort. In this section, Dr. Nudera outlines a simple three-step anesthesia testing protocol that will give you and the patient confidence in moving forward with treatment.
MODULE 3: SUPPLEMENTAL ANESTHESIA
When all the signs of local anesthetic are present, but the tooth isn't fully numb, we must understand alternative injection techniques to increase the efficacy of our local anesthetic. This section discusses why certain teeth can be more challenging to anesthetize than others, as well as various methods that can be considered to overcome these problematic scenarios.
