Local anesthetics are very safe drugs. However, they do sometimes, rarely, exhibit side effects. Practitioners inject thousands of dental cartridges every year and usually do not think about those potential issues. When they occur, we may be unprepared and unaware of what to do. This CE webinar will discuss the side effects and potential emergency situations that are associated with both local anesthetics and vasoconstrictors. As well, ways to mitigate these situations will be presented. Specifically, local anesthetic allergy, toxicity and cardiovascular emergencies will be explored.

During this CE webinar, we will
• Understand what the actual precursors are that can cause an allergic reaction
• Understand what the maximum doses are for local anesthetic toxicity
• Understand what the maximum doses are for vasoconstrictors in patients with cardiovascular disease
• Understand how to recognize the symptoms of local anesthetic toxicity and an allergic reaction
• Understand how to manage an allergic reaction and a toxic administration of a local anesthetic
