Anesthesia drugs typically are required during any type of surgical procedure or treatment necessary to eliminate pain. Dental surgical treatments usually must be performed immediately to alleviate pain. In this sense, local anesthetics are not subject to the prevalent economic conditions and instead demonstrate an inelastic demand. The pattern exhibited in this market is one of growth. As a direct result of the increase in life expectancy, the number of older patients with general medical conditions of importance for the dental surgeon has increased significantly during the last few years. In addition to increased life expectancy, the general growing aging population in Europe has created an increased demand for procedures which require local anesthesia.
Intraoperative pain control administered by the means of local anesthesia is an essential part of clinical practice in dentistry. Local anesthesia is induced so that the sensation of pain from the source of stimulation, such as a tooth or the periodontium (specialized tissues surrounding and supporting the teeth), is prevented from transmitting to the brain. The introduction of local anesthetics with the development of nerve blocking injection techniques uncovered a new era of patient comfort while permitting more extensive and invasive dental procedures.
