Part science and part art, delivering dental therapies to our patients requires a working knowledge of many things, including pharmacology. This full-day session will review the pharmacology and use of numerous types of drugs, including:
• Local anaesthetics
• Analgesics, including opioids
• MRONJ-associated medications (e.g. bisphosphonates)
• Agents for conscious sedation and anxiolysis
Further, we will briefly discuss some likely future trends of pharmacotherapy in dentistry. We will also review the drugs that we don’t prescribe but that our patients may present to us with. Time and interest permitting, we will also touch upon the ever-expanding world of natural remedies and some of the potential issues that these medicines may pose for us.
By the end of the session, we should be able to more confidently use our knowledge of drugs for the safe and effective treatment of our patients.
