Oral sedation offers hope to the anxious, fearful, and phobic patient. It’s safe for most patients and rewards provider dentists with a host of benefits. Consequently, the number of dentists offering minimal to moderate sedation services continues to rise.
However, despite the growth, many dentists are not confident in their abilities to administer oral sedation. The reason for the uncertainty? Information overwhelm. Dentists worry they’ll forget a step because sedation protocol, guidelines, and state laws are continuously changing.
In this course, Dr. Leslie Fang and Dr. Anthony Feck examine six oral sedation cases. The cases contain nuances, some of which are commonplace. Each case is followed by a summary question. At the end of the class, the doctors answer questions from the audience.
- The two conditions that necessitate reversing a patient
- Why reversing a patient can be dangerous
- What defines a “Category X” drug
- How to avoid breaking a cardinal rule of oral conscious sedation
- How to treat seizure-prone patients
- The fundamental problem with rigid single-dose protocol
- The primary purpose of a test sedation appointment
- Why test sedation appointments should be kept short
- What the “rule of eight” means for drug-drug interactions
- How nitrous oxide administration differs between sedated and non-sedated patients
- Why blocks are OK for use during sedation
… and more.
