Management of the Fearful Dental Patient

Fear of the dentist is one of our most common fears. Many patients have avoided seeking dental treatment because of these fears.

In this program, Dr. Malamed will review the more commonly employed management techniques for dental fear and anxiety, including the oral route of drug administration (e.g. triazolam [Halcion]); inhalation (N20-02); intravenous (IV), intramuscular (IM) and intranasal (IN).

Techniques will be compared as to efficacy and safety, as well as their utility in the typical dental practice.

Drugs, Death and Dentistry

The incidence of serious morbidity or of death within the confines of the dental office is, happily, quite low. However, on occasion, such problems do occur. Oftentimes these problems are associated with the administration of drugs associated with dental treatment.

In this presentation Dr. Malamed will review actual cases, illustrating what went wrong, and what could have been done either to prevent the incident from occurring in the first place or, failing that, what should have been done to produce a better outcome.
