What is vazirani Akinosi technique?

What is vazirani Akinosi technique?

Vazirani‚ÄďAkinosi nerve block technique is an established and a reliable technique to achieve anaesthesia in mandible with high success rate and is useful in cases where Halstead’s technique fails to provide desired anaesthetic effect.

What is the Gow-Gates technique?

The Gow-Gates technique requires the patient’s mouth to be open wide, and the dentist aims to administer local anesthetic just anterior to the neck of the condyle in proximity to the mandibular branch of the trigeminal nerve after its exit from the foramen ovale.

How do you give Akinosi injection?

Direct the syringe barrel parallel to the maxillary occlusal plane and medially past the coronoid process. Then the needle is placed at the same height as the mucogingival junction of the maxillary third or second molar directly across the way to determine the height of the injection (see Figure 6).

What nerves does the Gow-Gates anesthetize?

The nerves anesthetized by the Gow-Gates technique include the inferior alveolar and its branches (incisive and mental), lingual, mylohyoid, auriculotemporal and buccal (approximately 75 percent of the time).

Which of the following techniques may be used for administration of local Anaesthetic?

Supraperiosteal injection (infiltration) This is the most common technique used for obtaining pulpal anesthesia and is more commonly known as local infiltration. In this technique the patient is asked to partially open his mouth and the syringe is held parallel to the long axis of the tooth.

How do you give a PSA a nerve block?


  1. A 25 or 27 gauge short needle is acceptable.
  2. The area of insertion is the height of the mucobuccal fold above and distal to distobuccal root of the last molar present in the arch.
  3. Retract the cheek so the tissue of the mucobuccal fold is taut.
  4. Apply topical anesthetic.
  5. Orient the needle bevel toward the bone.

What are the branches of the mandibular nerve?

The Mandibular Nerve (V3) On its extracranial course, it divides into three main branches: the buccal, mental, and auriculotemporal nerves.

What is the buccal nerve?

The buccal nerve is the only sensory branch of the anterior mandibular division of the trigeminal nerve. It innervates the major part of the buccal mucosa, the inferior buccal gingiva in the molar area, and the skin above the anterior part of the buccinator muscle.
