How to get your teeth fixed
By Michael Konikoff,MIDI News and Politics EditorA new treatment for dental pain has been found in the region.
A study in Mexico found that a drug that can treat dental pain can be used to treat other dental problems in the same region.
The results of the study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, came as Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and U.S. President Donald Trump met in Mexico City for their first official meeting since the U.K. voted to leave the European Union.
The study’s authors said the drug, called konkolac, was found to be effective in treating dental pain in people who have suffered chronic pain in their mouths.
The drug is effective against chronic dental pain and other forms of pain, said Dr. Joaquin Saldaña, who led the study and is a professor of pediatrics at the Universidad Autónoma de México.
He said koncilac is currently being studied in other areas in Mexico, including Mexico City.
He added that the drug can be administered intravenously, and he said kontrolac was currently undergoing clinical trials in Mexico.
The Drug Enforcement Administration does not classify konlac as a controlled substance.
But a drug company called Mepro Pharma has applied to the FDA for authorization to test konrolac.
The DEA said it was reviewing the application.
