Will Cannabis Augment Local Anesthetics and Analgesics in Dentistry?

Course Description:

Many states have legalized cannabis (marijuana) for medical use and for recreational purposes. Despite this rise in social and legal acceptance, public health concerns regarding the use of cannabis remain, especially among dental professionals. Cannabis has been promoted as a replacement for opioids in the treatment of pain and even as a substitute for opioids in the treatment of addiction. This two-hour course will explore the rationale for the continued use of opioid analgesics and the potential use of cannabis in the management of acute dental pain.

Course Objectives:

Upon successful completion of this program, participants will be able to:

·       Discuss the pharmacology and mechanism of action of opioid and non-opioid analgesics.

·       Describe the pharmacology, mechanism of action, routes of administration, adverse effects and dental considerations of cannabis.

·       Explore the proposed intended role of cannabis, with and without opioid analgesics, in the management of acute dental pain.
