Local analgesia

Anyone performing oral surgical or periodontal procedures should be familiar with dental nerve block techniques, including a thorough knowledge of oral anatomy and analgesic agents and their application.

Facility requirements

Excellent dental care for canine and feline patients requires an efficient, organized, and safe work environment.

Operator protection
