Local anaesthesia forms the backbone of pain control techniques in contemporary dental practice
This lecture will focus on the following topics:
Achieving successful Mandibular Anaesthesia
The ‘mandibular nerve block’ has the lowest success rate of major nerve blocks administered in the human body. Newer techniques, such as the Gow-Gates mandibular nerve block; the Akinosi-Vazirani closed mouth mandibular nerve block; Intraosseous anaesthesia; and the Periodontal ligament injection have been developed in an effort to improve success in this area. Also , the local anaesthetic articaine HCl has been demonstrated to have significant success when administered by mandibular infiltration in adults.
Managing pain control in medically compromised patients
Dentists today increasingly face the challenge of managing medically compromised patients. Even though local anaesthetics are remarkably safe at therapeutic doses, their selection needs to be carefully considered in such cases. The type of drug, the administration of the drug and the patient’s physiological condition, disease status, and drug interaction must all be taken into account.
