Dr. Hersh conducts clinical trials of novel analgesic and local anesthetic agents employing dental pain models. His current research projects include efficacy and safety studies of a novel intranasal local anesthetic solution containing tetracaine and oxymetazoline in an effort to provide pulpal anesthesia of maxillary teeth without the need for injections, and a study of CL-108, an opioid combination drug with an immediate release layer of the antiemetic promethazine in postsurgical wisdom tooth surgery pain.
