Mental nerve block/oral surgery courses by indian dental academy

  1. 1. Mental nerve block It is the terminal branch of the I A N. Comes out of mental foramen at or near the mandibular premolars. Area suppiled: sensory innervations to the buccal soft tissues lying anterior to the foramen. Soft tissues of the lower lip & the chin. Indication: 1) Soft tissues biopsy 2) Suturing of soft tiissues Contraindications:actue inflammation at site of injection. Advantages:1)high success rate 2)easy technically. 3)atraumatic. Disadvantage: hematoma Chances of positive aspiration:5.7% Alternatives: Technique: 25-27gauge niddle Area of insertion :mucobuccal fold at or just anterior to the mental foramen
  2. 2. Traget area :mentak nerve as it exist from foramen Land mark : mandibular premolars & mucobuccal fold. Orientation of the bevel : towards the bon INCISIVE NERVE BLOCK Incisive nerve: Terminal branch of the I. A .N. Originates as a direct continuation of the i.a .nat the mental foramen& continues an Area suppied: premolars ,canines,incisors,there buccal soft tissue and bone. It provide sensory innervation to those teeth located anterior to the mental foramen. block: 1)dental procedures requiring pulpal anesthesia on the mandibular teeth anterior to mental foramen. 2)while treating premolar to premolar Contra indication: acute inflammation, Area anesthetized: Muccal mucosa anterior to the mental foramen.
