It is also important to be considered when performing anesthetic procedures and lifting flaps in the anterior region of the palate, because the aberrant canal extensions toward the palate provide innervation to areas that do not usually depend on the anterior superior alveolar nerve; likewise, its neurovascular content can be sectioned when lifting the flap (Valcu et al.; Neves et al.).
Patients who had pain even after buccal infiltration and intraligamentary were given inferior alveolar nerve block (IANB) with lidocaine.
Another study completed here in the United States involving inferior alveolar nerve blocks for nonsurgical therapy included the evaluation of 12 patients.
Comparative evaluation of effect of preoperative oral medication of ibuprofen and ketorolac on anesthetic efficacy of inferior alveolar nerve block with lidocaine in patients with irreversible pulpitis: a prospective, double-blind, randomized clinical trial.
Sixteen of the 17 dental hygiene respondents reported teaching 12 types of intraoral injections; one participant noted that the Gow-Gates and the anterior middle superior alveolar nerve block injections were not taught in their curriculum.
Comparing anesthetic efficacy of articaine versus lidocaine as a supplemental buccal after an inferior alveolar nerve block.
Using VSP, the exact locations of mandibular lesions and the inferior alveolar nerve canal were delineated.
While the ION is in the canal, it provides sensory innervations to the maxillary anterior teeth (anterior superior alveolar nerve), premolars (middle superior alveolar nerve), and associated gingiva.
However, such a margin was noted to overlap with the mandibular canal placing the patient at high risk for transection of the inferior alveolar nerve during tumor extirpation (Figure 3).
Mandibular canal (MC) is in close proximity with the osteotomy region of the BSSO technique, leading to a high risk of inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) injury (6-12).
Furthermore, the reconstructed image could determine whether the tumor has contact with the inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) or is separate from the IAN.
[1] The image magnification and the low reproducibility of alveolar canal diagnosis can increase the risks of anatomical structure damage to the inferior alveolar nerve. [10,13]
