Learning unit contents

During their clinical practice, dental practitioners may face acute problems, potentially leading to patient harm. These situations may be linked to preexisting pathology and/or to the intervention of the dental practitioner itself. Indeed, dental practitioners occasionally use local and loco-regional anesthesia techniques that can have deleterious side effects. Those undesirable events have to be recognized and treated by the practitioner.

Learning outcomes of the learning unit

At the end of the course, students will be able to :

  • Explain the etiology of undesirable reactions
  • Describe the associated symptoms
  • Make a differential diagnosis
  • Treat them appropriately
  • Know how to reduce the risk of their occurrence
