Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Scott Genutis, BS, DDS (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: This book describes the mechanisms of pain in terms of anatomy, biochemistry, and physiology. It then describes methods of pain control with local anesthesia, sedation, as well as nonpharmacological management of dental pain.
Purpose: According to the editors, the purpose is to provide a comprehensive approach to the management of acute pain and anxiety in conscious dental patients. These are worthy objectives. Pain and anxiety control are beneficial for both the dentist and the patient, and this book was thorough in completing its objectives.
Audience: It is written for students, residents, and practitioners. It is not targeted to a particular specialty and is in fact beneficial to any practitioner using pain control. The contributors are credible authorities in the subject matter.
Features: This book provides a thorough description of pain and its management with local anesthesia, various sedation techniques, and nonpharmacological methods. Methods of administering local anesthesia are covered very well. References for further reading provide the audience with valuable sources of information. Color pictures may be more effective.
Assessment: This book provides detailed information on the anatomy and physiology of pain transmission and its mediators. Describing various techniques of pain and anxiety control, it effectively covers methods of administering local anesthesia, sedation, and nonpharmacological therapeutics. The illustrations are extremely helpful. There are many similarities to Malamed's Handbook of Local Anesthesia (Mosby Year Book, Inc. 1997).
