Advances in Anesthesia Reduce Pain in Endodontic Care

The common misconception that endodontic care is painful can be put to rest as endodontists drastically improve on the administering of anesthetics. One of the most common concerns among dental and endodontic patients is that restorative dentistry and endodontics are inseparable from pain. The best example of this is the stigma surrounding root canal treatment that deems it a painful and frightening procedure. Professional Endodontics is here to tell you that this is simply not true. Advances in anesthetics and the methods for administering them have led to an immense reduction in the level of pain experienced and the time of recovery needed for most endodontic procedures. Past Problems with Pulpal Anesthesia The cause of most dental discomfort, past and present, is due to misunderstandings in pulpal anesthesia. The most common of these misunderstandings is that achieving lip numbness indicates pulpal (tooth) numbness as well. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. In fact, it’s difficult to determine whether pulpal numbness has been achieved prior to patient discomfort during treatment. The failure to fully anesthetize pulpal regions is due to any number of reasons. However, failure to anesthetize just means that the anesthetic solution did not diffuse into the nerve [...]

Learning Implementation Best Practices – Bridging the Gap

“Learning Implementation best practices are rooted in common sense, yet they are surprisingly not common practice,” writes Ed Emde, president of Wilson Learning Corp, in a recent article that appeared in[1] Emde believes the reason for this is the wrong focus. Rather than recording what happens in the classroom, learning leaders should pay attention to workplace practices. Answers to the questions, “Does it work?” and “Is it successful?” are the best barometers for any type of learning implementation. This advice will sound familiar to lean learning experts. Pragmatism or results-oriented criteria are at the heart of lean strategies. The goal of any learning implementation program is to improve performance. Yet according to Emde, learning leaders often feel so pressured to install the program, they fail to observe and record its effectiveness. As a result, implementation falls short of expectations. Common excuses for failed implementation can be lack of proper support, insufficient budget, or lack of time. Emde cites Michael Woodard, GE Power Services’ global learning leader, as an example of a successful learning professional who is unconcerned about these issues. Instead, says Emde, Woodard focuses on delivering the same high-quality program content to every component of the company’s learning [...]
