Shoot Your Shot – Ep. 34
Effective local anesthetic is arguably the single most important pillar upon which modern dentistry stands. Dr. John Nusstein, chair, Division of Endodontics at OSU, provides perspective on anesthetic updates. This discussion touches on new technology designed to improve the local anesthetic experience. Dr. Nusstein, through his engaging manner, humorously infiltrates listeners’ ears and identifies new and fascinating trends in anesthetic research. We get into lively conversation on the continuing hurdles clinicians encounter in achieving complete pulpal anesthesia with the Akinosi, traditional block and Gow Gates and highlight various techniques or adjuncts that can increase efficiency. Anatomical features, block vs. local, and contemporary anesthetic research trends are all given a shot for discussion during this segment. Tune in today!
