The anatomy of the 5th cranial nerve is reviewed, specifically its maxillary and mandibular divisions. Specific maxillary injections are reviewed including the infiltration (supraperiosteal), anterior superior alveolar nerve block; middle superior alveolar nerve block; posterior superior alveolar nerve block; anterior superior alveolar nerve block; and palatal injection techniques.
Local anesthetic techniques providing pain control in the maxillary arch are described in this program following a review of the anatomy of the trigeminal nerve. Techniques include infiltration (supraperiosteal), anterior superior alveolar nerve block; middle superior alveolar nerve block; posterior superior alveolar nerve block; anterior superior alveolar nerve block; and palatal injection techniques.
- Select the appropriate maxillary injection technique for the planned dental procedure
- Name the branches of the Vth cranial nerve and discuss their relevance to dental treatment
- Describe the indications for, and technique of, maxillary infiltration
- Describe the indications for, and technique of, the posterior superior alveolar nerve block
- Describe the indications for, and technique of, the anterior superior alveolar nerve block
- Describe the indications for, and technique of, the anterior middle superior alveolar nerve block
- List the recommended volume of local anesthetic solution for each maxillary injection technique
