Therapeutic agent [drugs] in edndodontic

Endodontic treatment is the most clinical situation amenable to drug therapy in dentistry Why the therapeutic agent to describe to patient? 1- To decrease fear and anxiety of the patient 2-To control the pain 3- To control the infection

Management of anxiety
What is meaning anxiety ? • Irrational anxiety and rational fear of the • patient toward dental treatment are major factors limiting access to dental care N B many patient having a dental problem • but he did not go to dental clinical SICKEL treatment just fear just anxiety This fear may be improper handling from • another doctors Or may be history he tell from another one •

Why are have control anxiety of pt before start treat?

1-To cooperation of patient is very important • for successful any dental treatment 2-Through control anxiety of pt to make dental • treatment is very easy for pt or practitioner as like 3-Through control anxiety providing excellent • dental treatment for patient So dentist provide optimal dental care •

Management of anxiety Patient reassurance Chemical drugs Nitrous oxide .

1-Patient reassurance Dentist smile Dentist explain the steps of procedure for patient [explain every steps] as what is caries what are you going to-do? If patient need endotreatment and any problem in tooth the dentist explain the steps of this procedure 2-Chemical drug Sedative A.Benzodiazepam B.Sedative hypnotic C-Antihistaminic .

Anticonvulsant • 4-Skeletal Ms relaxation • 5-Hallucination • 6-Addiction • • .Antianexiety • 2-Sedative and hypnotic [small dose it is sedative and calming but increasing dose leading to sleeping effect drug for sleep] 3.Benzodiazepine Group of the drugs have sedative effect and calming effect on the pt Benzodiazepine according to duration divided into • • 1-Long acting as valium Librium 2-Medium or short acting • • The pharmacological effect • 1.

Side effect 1.Drowsiness • 2-Ataxia and lethargy • 3-Visual motor impairment co ordination • 4-Behaviour changes and daytime sedation • 5-Chronic drug dependence • 6-C N S depression • .

ethinamate 6-Imidazopyridine .zolpidem 7-Miscellaneous –antihistaminic scopolamine Meprobamate 8-Drugs like morphine and pethidine besides acting as analgesic also possess hypnotic .Classification of hypnotics 1-Urea derivatives A-Diureides – barbiturates B Related ureides – glutethimide 2-Benzodiazepines 3-Alcohols – chloral hydrate 4-Aldehydes-paraldhyde 5-Acetylated carbinols.

2-Sedative and hypnotic drugs • Barbiturates Non barbiturate Barbiturate group dividing according to duration into Ultra short acting short acting intermedium acting long acting NB The effect of barbiturate depend on the dose if given in the dose of 15mg 3 to 4 times day acts as daytime sedative [large dose produce sleep The hypnotic effect appear within 15 to 30 min and maintained for 4 to 5 hours ] Anesthetic effect short acting thiobarbiturates IV produce general anesthesia Side effect 1-physical dependence 2-Respiratory depression and death .

Nonbarbiturate Nonbarbiturate have different chemical structure • than barbiturate so no cross allergy and it have similar pharmacological effect Less potent than barbiturate • Side effect • Ataxia euphoria neurological insomnia visual • motor in coordination hypotension dyspnea respiratory depression nervousness buellered vision insomnia Types of nonbarbiturate as • Benzodiazepine ethyl alcohol chloral hydrate • antihistaminic .

5 min ] and no need • recovery room as general anesthesia 2.Easy administration[ minimum side effect • Effect on patient [reasonable reverse side effect] • 1.history of pschycosis 3-migrain neurological damage with prolonged abuse • .Mental and physical relaxation • 2.Indifference in surrounding • 3.Nitrous oxide inhalation It is inorganic gas compressed into liquid [ laughing gas] • • It is wide used in dental clinic used for uncooperative patient to control anxiety It is neither inflammable nor explosive colorless sweet smelling • It is not irritated to respiratory tract • Why using it ? Advantage • 1-Rapid onset and recovery [ onset within 3.Elevation in pain perception • 4.Euphoria drowsiness floating drink • Side effect minimum side effect [behavior alteration as euphoria • ]assume shock Contraindicate • 1-Acaustic anxiety 2.

2-Pain control It is one of the most challenge aspect of the clinical practice of endodontic and one by which the skillful endodontic called be a major Your skill in patient judged by pain control [ proper control of pain of patient you will good doctor] What's the pain ? Unpleasant physical and emotional experience trigged by noxious stimulus which transmitted and received in higher brain center along special pathway NB stimulus of the pain transited by pathway to higher brain center which receive this signal .

If proper control to anxiety of the patient that postoperative pain will decrease as the case report 2-Operative - -Effective local anesthesia -Operative technique endodontic treatment 3-Postoperative control pain through using the drugs - .Anxiety reduction .How can management the endodontic pain ? 1-Preoperative • -Accurate diagnosis [before starting your treatment making proper diagnosis] .What's the relation of the anxiety to pain ? .

Pain management strategies The [ 3 Ds ] Diagnosis Definitive treatment Drugs Diagnosis it is a critical initial step in mange pain • because some condition have referred pain which not odontogenic relation as sinusitis so proper diagnosis to prevent misdiagnosis Definitive treatment • According to condition to make pulpotomy or • pulpectomy Why the definitive treat is important to reduce pain? • In emergency condition of endodontic as • Acute pulpitis Acute apical abscess Acute peri apical periodontitis .

Why decreasing the pain by pulpotomy or pulpectomy and drainage ? 1.Removing pulp tissue which cause interpulpal pressure from pressing on nerve fiber [pus drainage leading to remove the present pressure so pain relief 2-Removing or reducing inflammatory mediator of the disease which stimulate nerve fiber NB –Definitive treatment reduce or eliminate peripheral causative factors cause hyperemia Predictable pain reduction strategies in emergency are \\[ pulpotomy or pulpectomy as in case of Acute pulpitis and secondly canal depridment and occlusal reduction ] In case of acute per apical periodontitis treat by pus drainage Definitive treat in per apical abscess is drainage pus through tooth and incision and drainage .

NB IF patient have painful irreversible pulpitis is effective to management pulpectomy or pulpotomy When make pulpotomy or pulpectomy ? If you haven't enough time and in multirooted canal so removing pulp tissue in pulp chamber [ pulpotomy] But if you have time pulpectomy is indicated The final conclusion that optimum mange of pain of odontogenic origin should be focus on two issue Definitive treatment is removing etiological source of infection at primary site with pharmacological mange if needed [ analgesic to control pain] .

Analgesic Narcotic opioid analgesics Non narcotics Non Narcotics 1-Non steroid anti inflammatory drugs 2-Non anti inflammatory analgesics antipyretic .

4. 5. 2.Analgesics The drug that has the ability to raise visceral threshold to sub cortical level Drug used to decrease or eliminate pain without • unconsciousness but GA with unconsciousness • 1-Non steroid anti inflammatory drugs It is first strategies for management the endodontic pain • • 1. 3. Acetyl salicylic acid [ aspirin ] -Prop ionic acid [Ibrufen Advil ] -Ketoprofen ibuprofen -Mefenmic acid ponstan -Piroxicam folden -Zomax . 6.

Mod of action of NSADs It inhibit synthesis of prostaglandin from arachonic acid [one of the • inflammatory mediators] So they available to managing of pain and inflammation • N B most of the pulp diseases are inflammatory disease so it need this drug • for treat NB NSADs have the same of pharmacological effect but different in chemical • structures Pharmacological effect • 1-Anagisic • 2-antipyritic • 3.Anti inflammatory • 4-Antireheumtic • -Gastric ulcer gastric acidity ulceration G IT disturbance • .Blood reaggregation bleeding • -Nephrotoxicty if it is used in large dose it have side effect on kidney • -Allergic • NB we must start definitive treatment and used drugs if needed at the • last -In 90% the conditions of endo dontic pain reliefing after pulpotomy or • pulpectomy whatever you using analgesic or not .

Bleeding disorder renal disease 4-Chronic liver diseases 5-Pregnancy and nursing may be responsible for low birth weight babies Non anti inflammatory analgesic antipyretic Acetaminophen [ paracetamol] Indication -Save in using during pregnancy -In case of G i T disturbance -No effect on bleeding time Contraindication of acetaminophen No absolute conaindication unless use in large dose 1.Allergy 2-Hepatic toxic and renal failure NB this drug is the second choice as less effective and not have anti inflammatory effect .Contraindications of NSADs 1-Sensitivity to drug 2-G I T disturbance peptic ulcer 3.

Opioid [ Narcotic ] analgesic It is natural or synthetic drug that bind specifically to opioid brain receptor and produce some or all pharmacological effect of morphine Mode of action Opioid means that drug make activation to opioid receptor in the brain which block to pathway of signal transmission from trigeminal neuralgia NB Opioid work in high brain center so it is very effective but N S A D work peripherally Pharmacological effect 1-Analgesic 2-Hypontosis 3-Euphoria 4-Musle relaxation NB it have wide adverse side effect so it used only in sever orofacial pain Dyesnae Drowsiness constipation Cough suppression Respiratory depression Physical dependence and addiction Indication 1-In moderate to sever pain NB opioid are frequently used in combination with other drugs because the combination permit lower dose of the opioid that can reduce the side effect [ Oxycodone + Acetaminophen ] .

to optimize dose of Narcotic before enter in Narcotic NB if pain not responded for routine treatment you can used combination of Narcotic plus N S A DS to decreasing the dose of Narcotic and simultaneously decreasing its side effect 2-Make balance between patient need for analgesic and potential averse side effect Long acting anesthesia to control pain Duration is 8 -10 hours .Analgesic strategy Flexible prescription strategy has been purposed to maximize analgesic benefit with minimal exposure with side effect Analgesic strategies 1.

Pharmacological adjunct • Definitive treatment • How to control the infection in root canal system? • -Clean and shaping [instrumentation combined with irrigation with intracanal medicament • Irrigation solution act as antimicrobial activity which irrigate inaccessible area [lateral canal and some area in pulp chamber ]that difficult for entering by file • -It is flushing agent for debris • Irrigation solution as sodium hypo chloride antibacterial .Infection control • Optimum management of endodontic infection involved definite treatment and pharmacological adjunct when indicated • Management of infection • 1-Definitive treatment 2.3.

Before prescribed antibiotic you must known if virtually need antibiotic 2-Which types of antibiotic you can to use .Secondly use may be need antibacterial [antibiotics ] Antibiotics are natural compound that posses antimicrobial effect and are use as holding adjunct to control of infection [ just helping ] NB if patient have periapical abscess you have starting endodontic treatment and finally description antibiotics if needed [antibiotic is consider to be help for agent Management of infection The simple most important decision in antibiotic treatment is not so much which antibiotic should be use but which antibiotic used at tour 1.

When prescription antibiotic to patient ? There are must be clear evidence of bacterial invasion that is greater than host defense capability -There are must be clear evidence that invasion of microorganism above limit of immune system -In some cases virulence of microorganism is very high above immune system so described antibiotic 1-For treatment infection -Acute infection and patient have systemic manifestation [hotness redness lymphoadenopathy ] NB antibiotic described in acute infection not in chronic infection Diffuse swelling -Virulence of microorganism is very high and immune system cannot localize infection so you must help it To localized infection 2-As prophylaxis before infection -in immunocopromised patient -bacterial endocarditis .

When antibiotic are not indicated ? When not use antibiotic? 1-Irrevesible pulpitis • 2-Acute apical periodontitis • -Complete pulpectomy and reduction occlusion to relief • pain and infection 3-Drainging localized swelling [chronic periapical abscess] -In localized swelling or sinus tract drainage the immune system is very good because it is tried to confined the infection and it need only removing irritant from root canal 4-Endo surgery • -If site is clean and aseptic condition as body will heal • without antibiotic NB antibiotic indicated in surgery in cases of implant or • prosthesis as plates • .

Bacteriostatic suppress growth of microorganism stop growth lead to immune system control organism 2-Bacteriocidial direct killing -Antibiotic divided according to coverage into 1-Narrow spectrum work on single species 2-Extended spectrum worked on gram +ve plus some of gram –ve 3-Broad spectrum work against both species Antibiotic dividing according to mode of action into 1-Ihibation of cell wall synthesis 2-Alteration of cell membrane integrity 3-Ihibation of R NA synthesis and suppress of nucleic acid .Bacteria may achieve antibiotic resistance [ patient not respond to antibiotic ] • • • • • • • • • • • Antibiotic divided according to the potent into 1.Why not to prescribe antibiotics ? • 1-Antibiotic are harm and not save as all lit cause GIT disturbance nepherotoxicity • 2-Antibiotic are used as prophylaxis isn't commonly useful • 3.

What is the dose and what's duration ? 3-When will are going to selected antibiotic ? Sensitivity test \\ Most endodontic infection are facultative anaerobic microorganism so we don’t work sensitivity test NB Sensitivity test need 4 days to one week to performed so in endodontic infection don’t depend on it but the choice is empirical Dose depended on age weight Adult in case acute infection \\ first give high loading dose [ 2 capsules 1000 mg at first time to high serum level ] Maintenance dose 500 mg every 6 hours Duration \\ how you known the proper selection to anti biotic ? After 24.48 hours patient follow up if sign and symptom of acute infection [decrease swelling and redness hotness ] relief or patient good response and prognosis to antibiotic Duration after sign and s relief extended your time for using antibiotic two days to three days to prevent microorganism resistance [mutation of microorganism ] • All duration is 6 -10 days [2-3 days plus 2-3 days after s s relief ] .Road map [before prescription antibiotic] • • • • • • • • • • • • • 1-Whate is the appropriate antibiotic ? 2.

• Penicillin • What's antibiotic ? It has spectrum of microbial activity including both facultative and anaerobic microorganism Penicillin Vk oral rout 500 mg \ 6 h • Penicillin G I m injection • Mod of action bactericidal • Why penicillin is first choice in used ? • -It is very save • -Mode of action against antibacterial [facultative anaerobic microorganism ] • Adverse side effect • 1-Allergy • All penicillin have up to 10% allergy • G I T disturbance or anaphylactic shock • To prevent allergy taking history from the patient if have allergy to one product he allergic to all types of penicillin • -After 24 h follow up and take history of patient as[ diarrhea GiTdisturbancance • -You can management anaphylactic shock • 2.Gastro intestinal disturbance • 3-Bacterial resistance [ develop pencillinase enzyme that destruction ring structure of penicillin • Broad spectrum penicillin as amoxicillin cloxacillin dycloxaciillin • NB To overcome problem of resistance of microorganism adding Kgluconate to amoxicillin prevent ring destruction as augmentin Neocene amoxicillin k gluconate .
