Special needs patients require unique anesthetic approaches
from Dr. Bicuspid
Safe, successful dental treatments in special needs patients depend on choosing the right anesthetic methods and equipment and having a skilled staff, according to a recent study. The use of local anesthesia is sufficient for completing simple dental treatments, with 90% of the patients in the study tolerating it, the researcher found. About 7% of patients needed additional analgesia, and about 3% of patients were given narcotic analgesics in treatments that caused severe pain.
