Injectable local anesthetics are used to generate local or regional analgesia for surgical procedures or other dental procedures.
Local anesthetics reversibly block neural transmission when applied to a circumscribed area of the body.
There are two main classes of injectable local anesthetics: esters and amides.
They are different from each other in the chemical bond that joins the two ends of the drug molecule.
Four criteria are useful in choosing a local anesthetic for use in dental procedures: 1) duration of the dental procedure 2) need for hemostasis 3) need to control post-surgical pain 4) contraindication(s) to specific anesthetic and vasoconstrictor drugs.
When an intervention is not particularly demanding, superficial anesthetics are a valid alternative to traditional injections, and make it possible for numerous treatments to be carried out with the maximum level of comfort for both the patient and the operator.
