Preoperative nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication for the prevention of postoperative dental pain.
TLDR
Prophylactic use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication for preventing postoperative discomfort is reviewed, and recommendations on patient selection and medication regiment are included. Expand
Glial cell line‐derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) from adult rat tooth serves a distinct population of large‐sized trigeminal neurons
TLDR
Investigation of potential roles of GDNF in the regulation of adult trigeminal neurons and the dental pulp nerve supply of the rat maxillary first molar suggests that GDNF may function as a neurotrophic factor for subsets of nerves in the tooth, which apparently mediate mechanosensitive stimuli. Expand
β2-Adrenoceptor Regulation of CGRP Release from Capsaicin-sensitive Neurons
TLDR
It is demonstrated that activation of β2-adrenoceptors in dental pulp significantly reduces exocytosis of neuropeptides from capsaicin-sensitive nociceptors, which may have physiologic significance in regulating PBF. Expand
Activation of Excitatory Amino Acid Receptors in Bovine Dental Pulp Evokes the Release of iCGRP
TLDR
The results suggest that the activation of AMPA and kainate receptors in dental pulp may contribute to peripheral release of vasoactive neuropeptides which mediate a neurogenic component of inflammation. Expand
Components of effective outreach and recruitment programs for underrepresented minority and low-income dental students.
TLDR
The internal infrastructural and organizational approaches these dental schools used to increase awareness about oral health careers among URM and LI students and to recruit applicants from these populations to their educational programs are described. Expand
Dose-responsive characteristics of meperidine sedation in preschool children.
TLDR
Using double-blind conditions, meperidine sedation was found to be more effective for older children and for children initially rated as being only moderately uncooperative and fearful prior to restorative dental treatment. Expand
Pharmacology of peripheral neuropeptide and inflammatory mediator release.
TLDR
Two new methods are described, clinical microdialysis and superfusion of dental pulp, which provide data on the pharmacology of peripheral neuropeptide and inflammatory mediator release, and provide a biochemically based approach toward determining the mechanisms and management of orofacial pain. Expand
A longitudinal evaluation of pulpal pain during orthodontic tooth movement.
TLDR
Subjective ratings of treatment-evoked tooth pain in the experimental group were the greatest at the post-archwire day 1 observation and progressively decreased for the remaining observations, and a trend was noted where reports of greater orthodontic tooth pain were associated with increased sensitivity to electrical stimulation. Expand
Preemptive analgesia and local anesthesia as a supplement to general anesthesia: a review.
TLDR
Evidence that the combined use of GA and LA may reduce the afferent barrage of surgery, and that preemptive analgesia may reduce postoperative pain and should be used in patient care is reviewed. Expand
Postoperative pain management in children, parental English proficiency, and access to interpretation.
TLDR
Children of LEP parents received fewer pain assessments and were less likely to receive opioids for similar levels of pain compared with children of EP parents, and more frequent use of professional interpreters when assessing pain may aid in reducing the gap in pain management between LEP and EP pediatric patients.
