Update on Management of Dental Pain with Medicines

Event Details

Maximising medication efficacy and minimizing risks for different people, with different co-morbidities and different types of pain

Managing pain is a daily duty for most dental professionals, with analgesic medications used frequently as an adjunct to dental interventions. Although ibuprofen, paracetamol and codeine are the most commonly utilised medicines, a range of other medicines are available. However it is not so clear how to choose between these medicines, their benefits and risks, when to use combinations or what precautions to heed regarding co-morbid conditions and interactions with concomitant medications. Other clinical issues include how to best manage acute pain in the very young, the very old, in pregnancy and breastfeeding. How to manage acute dental pain in patients who are already on medicines for chronic pain will also be discussed.

This seminar will cover all the issues of using medicines for pain management you wish they’d taught you at university. There will be ample time for discussion including case examples and challenges faced in clinical practice.
