Good local anaesthesia is the basis of operative dentistry, as failure to achieve good control of sensory input can compromise the outcome of clinical procedures. This book concentrates on the practical aspects of delivering and monitoring local anaesthesia in line with best practice. Each chapter not only incorporates a list of objectives/aims, but also outlines the science underpinning clinical practice, providing comprehensive information at many levels.

All dental undergraduates need to study this subject and this book provides the reader with a small, concise pocket reference at an affordable price. It is also an invaluable purchase for the dental practitioner, ensuring that their practice is in line with current evidence-based practice.

Contents: Physiology of nerve conduction; Pharmacological basis of local anaesthesia; Instruments; Techniques for delivery of local anaesthesia; Maxillary anaesthesia; Mandibular anaesthesia; Management of the difficult case; Selection of patients for treatment under local anaesthesia; Local complications; Systemic complications; Medico-legal considerations; Glossary of terms; Index.
