In the video, Dr. Markus Tröltzsch (Göttingen) gives a presentation about the use of medication in the dental practice. For a variety of indications, he provides a practical guideline about the recommended pharmaceutical and its dose. To either relieve or also prevent pain, usually the non-opioid analgesics Ibuprofen and Metamizole are administered for odontogenic treatments. These analgesics are given in combination with a proton-pump inhibitor (Omeprazol/Pantoprazole) to protect the gastric mucosa. If stronger pain relief is needed, opioid pain killers may be used. The treatment of certain bacterial infections requires the administration of antibiotics.
