The fourth edition now has second color for ease of reading.The technique portion has been expanded to include supplemental ones.Also expanded are the local and systemic complications. Questions concerning LA are also useful for both students and dental professionals. Very useful refernce text for my CE courses, as well when needing a refernce chairside when I have difficulities.

I will be soon training to administer local anesthesia in the dental office where I work as a periodontal co-therapist. This is the book that is required and with the DVD it is perfect for studying. I would recommend this for any dental hygienist in this type of program.

This is a very thorough book for all clinicians. It explains the theory of anesthetic action, covers the various types of anesthetics - and their various formulations.
It describes various anesthetic techniques in excellent detail. The DVD is a great addition, to be able to see the techniques and anatomical landmarks. additionally, I found several new techniques that I have had good success with.
I recommend this book for the student, new clinician, as well as a valuable review for experienced clinicians

I think this is one of the books that every dentist should have.

It's dry. I find reading this book to be duller than pulling teeth.
However, this covers a lot of the very basic information that I feel every dentist should know before an injection.

Personally, I hate this book with a passion, as my instructor (a hygienist) forced us to memorize various parts of the texts instead of understanding the anatomical foundation of the various nerve blocks. While I don't think that she knew as much as she claimed. The various contraindications, considerations with weight, and especially pediatric max dosages are very useful to know. Additionally, knowledge of the relative half-life of each anesthetic is a very useful thing to give to patients.

This book would be incomplete without a copy of Netter's Anatomy.
If you have a skull, it's even better.

There some areas where I think that Malamed is wrong, or at least gives incomplete information:
1. Pt's can DEFINITELY FEEL THE DIFFERENCE IN NEEDLE SIZE particularly in an IA block!
I've observed many different clinicians, specialists, and given quite a few injections. Pt's can feel the injection. That being said, his choice of a thicker needle is definitely validated by the reduced tendency of the needle to break (of course, I'd question why you'd break a needle while delivering an injection as a dentist. It's supposed to be gentle).
2. The entry of the inferior alveolar nerve is dictated by skeletal landmarks, not just dental.

This book really helped me out before I left for Peru on a dental mission trip. Our school taught us well but our notes were limited in pedo. I didnt realize we would only be working with children down there. So I was very happy I brought this book along for the trip. Very good descriptions and diagrams.

Not my favorite subject but I purchased it for a weekend class/course that I was taking. I only wish that the clinical time was a lot longer.
