Course Description

It is a well known and accepted fact that many patients avoid necessary dental care because of anxiety associated with the delivery of that care. Pre-emptive anxiolysis can increase patient cooperation, improve anesthetic induction, maintenance and recovery and attenuate the sometimes harmful adverse autonomic responses. Specific clinical techniques will be addressed in this presentation.

Course Objectives

  • Discuss the management of anxiety associated with dental care
  • List agents available for oral sedation
  • Discuss use of these agents in dental practice
