  1. 1. Maxillary Anesthetic TechniquesMaxillary Anesthetic Techniques Dr Hesham El-Hawary El- www.elhawarydentalclinic.com ELHAWARY
  2. 2. Maxillary Anesthetic TechniquesThe main factors are:1. Selection of a suitable syringe and needle2. Utilization of the proper L.A. drug3. Insertion of the needle in the correct site for injection ELHAWARY
  3. 3. Maxillary Anesthetic Techniques1. Middle meningeal nerve2. Twiges to the sphenopalatine ganglion3. Posterior superior alveolar nerve4. Zygomatic nerve5. Infra-Orbital Nerve 1. Middle superior alveolar nerve 2. Anterior superior alveolar nerve 3. Terminal branches 1. Inferior palpebral nerve 2. External nasal nerve 3. Superior labial nerve ELHAWARY
  4. 4. Maxillary Anesthetic Techniques Nerve supply of Maxillary teeth Pulp , Investing structures & Labial (buccal) mucoperiosteum Anterior teeth Anterior superior alveolar nerve (1,2,3)Premolars (4,5) & MB root of 1st Middle superior alveolar nerve molar(6)Molars except MB root of 1st Posterior superior alveolar nerve molar(6) ELHAWARY
  5. 5. Maxillary Anesthetic TechniquesNerve supply of Maxillary teeth Cont. Palatal mucoperiosteumAnterior teeth Nasopalatine nerve (1,2,3) Premolars (4,5) Greater ( Anterior) palatine nerve &Molars (678) ELHAWARY
  6. 6. Maxillary Anesthetic Techniques Local Anesthesia1. Topical anesthesia2. Local infiltration3. Field block4. Nerve block ELHAWARY
  7. 7. Maxillary Anesthetic Techniques Local Anesthesia• Topical Anesthesia – Ointments, gels, sprays and pastes on mucous membrane or skin – Application of a topical anesthetic agent on the mucosa allows for the easy and painless insertion of the sharp needle – Affects free nerve endings ELHAWARY
  8. 8. Maxillary Anesthetic Techniques Local Anesthesia• Local Infiltration – Flooding of the small terminal nerve endings with local anesthetic solution ELHAWARY
  9. 9. Maxillary Anesthetic Techniques Local Anesthesia• Field Block – Referred to as local infiltration – local anesthetic solution is deposited in the vicinity of larger terminal nerve fiber – so a circumscribed area is anesthetized – Local anesthesia injection above a tooth apex is an example of a field block, in spite of being referred to as paraperiosteal or supraperiosteal infiltration anesthesia ELHAWARY
  10. 10. Maxillary Anesthetic Techniques Local Anesthesia• Subperiosteal injection – Not be attempted – Because of • Liability of needle breakage • Difficulty of forcing the anesthetic agent between periosteum and bone ELHAWARY
  11. 11. Maxillary Anesthetic Techniques Local Anesthesia• Nerve Block – The anesthetic solution is deposited close to a main nerve trunk – Usually at a distance from the operative site before the nerve divided into terminal branches ELHAWARY
  12. 12. Maxillary Anesthetic Techniques Buccal inf. Infiltiration Palatal inf. Incisive N.B.Maxillary anesthesia Anterior & Middle Sup. Alv. N.B. Post. Sup. Alv. Nerve block N.B. Palatine N.B. Maxillary N.B. ELHAWARY
  13. 13. Maxillary Anesthetic Techniques Factors affecting selection of the technique to be used1. Area to be anesthetized Depending on the type of bone (density of bone) – Maxilla and anterior mandibular region are mainly formed of cancellous bone with thin cortical layer above allowing infiltration anesthesia or field block anesthesia reaches the nerve filaments inside the cancellous bone – Posterior mandible is covered with thick and dense cortical layer, thus nerve lock anesthesia is indicated ELHAWARY
  14. 14. Maxillary Anesthetic Techniques Factors affecting selection of the technique to be used Cont.2. Extent of surgical procedure – In multiple extractions, nerve block anesthesia is preferable to – Allow anesthesia of the entire operative area – Prevent multiple needle punctures to attain the same anesthesia through infiltration ELHAWARY
  15. 15. Maxillary Anesthetic Techniques Factors affecting selection of the technique to be used Cont.3. Duration and profoundness of anesthesia Nerve block anesthesia produces a more profound and longer duration than infiltration anesthesia4. Age of the patient Older individuals have dense bone, thus it is more difficult for infiltration anesthesia to penetrate into the bone ELHAWARY
  16. 16. Maxillary Anesthetic Techniques Factors affecting selection of the technique to be used Cont.5. Homeostasis When required for the procedure, infiltration anesthesia is recommended to allow the vasoconstrictor present with the local anesthetic to act directly on the blood vessels and reduce bleeding ELHAWARY
  17. 17. Maxillary Anesthetic Techniques Factors affecting selection of the technique to be used Cont.6. Presence of infection Infiltration anesthesia should be avoided to prevent injection into an infected area which can spread the infection7. Skill of the operator ELHAWARY
  18. 18. Maxillary Anesthetic TechniquesMaxillary Anesthetic TechniquesINFILTRATION ANESTHESIA ELHAWARY
  19. 19. Maxillary Anesthetic Techniques The most commonly used technique It is divided into  Soft tissue infiltration  Submucosal  Paraperiosteal  Bony infiltration ELHAWARY
  20. 20. Maxillary Anesthetic TechniquesSoft tissue infiltration anesthesiaIn this technique anesthesia is deposited intothe soft tissue in close proximity to bonewhich is then absorbed via pores in the bonesurface till it reaches the nerve filamentsinside the cancellous bone ELHAWARY
  21. 21. Maxillary Anesthetic Techniques Soft Tissue InfiltrationSubmucosal anesthesia Paraperiosteal Anesthesia Needle is inserted at a slight  Called local infiltration depth just below the  Mostly used for anesthetizing mucous membrane  All maxillary teeth In cases just need  Lower anterior mandibular teeth superficial anesthesia  It’s action depends on the  Hypertrophied tissue diffusion of the L.A. solution  High muscle attachment through the periosteum and the minute foramina in the cortical bone ELHAWARY
  22. 22. Maxillary Anesthetic Techniques Paraperiosteal AnesthesiaAdvantages Disadvantages1. High success rate • Not suitable for large areas2.
