Most odontogenic infections are polymicrobial. The number of isolated strains ranges from 1 to 10 with an average number of approximately 4 isolates per infection.

When antibacterial chemotherapy is indicated, the drug of choice should be either the most effective drug against infective pathogens or the least toxic alternative among several available agents. Dr. Geza Terezhalmy will discuss the pharmacology of antibacterial agents and present evidence-based information that will help you with the selection of the most appropriate choice for the management of an odontogenic infection. It is worth 4 CE.

Local anesthetics are the most used drugs in dentistry and are considered the most effective for pain management and prevention. However, the “shot” is the most fear-inducing facet of the dental experience for most patients. An estimated 75% of all dental office medical emergencies are stress-related and therefore preventable.
In this course, Dr. Stanley Malamed shares beneficial information on the injection armamentarium and comprehensive patient evaluation, as well as relevant anatomy and all injection techniques. You will learn about the localized and systemic complications that can arise with local anesthesia, and how to prevent and manage them. The course will cover the facts and fiction of local anesthesia and take an in-depth look at the future of pain control in dentistry.
