Preparations for Anesthesia

  1. 1. LOCAL ANAESTHESIA and EXODONTIA Dr. Reda F. Elgazzar BDS, MSC, (Eg) Phd (UK) Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Dept. College of Dentistry, King Faisal University, KSA.
  2. 2. LECTURE NO 4 1. LOCAL ANAESTHETIC EQUIPMENTS 2. INTRODUCTION TO LA TECHNIQUES
  3. 3. Outline  LA equipments  LA Syringe, Needle, Cartridge    Position of the operator and the patient Infection control during LA procedures LA Techniques:    Infiltration Block Topical    Methods Technique for successful TA Importance and effectiveness
  4. 4. The equipment used to deliver LA solutions comprises three components: • Needle • LA Cartridge • Syringe • Topical A.
  5. 5. LA Needle They are disposable  Components: shank, hub, bevel  Dimensions: length: Ultrashort, Short & Long width (gauge): 27 (0.4) & 30 (0.3)   Package: blisters, cans Hazards: handling, injury
  6. 6. LA cartridge • Components: Cylinder, plunger, diaphragm • Types: Standard – Self aspirating, plastic, Glass • Contents: LA, VC, Vehicle, preservative. • Volume: 1.8, 2.00 & 2.2 ML.
  7. 7. Packaging
  8. 8. Important information
  9. 9. LA Syringe    Usually non-disposable Components: threaded hub, Barrel, Plunger Types: According to: • • • Loading: Side (lateral) and breach (basal) Aspiration: Non-aspirating, Manual aspirating & Automatic aspirating Material: Metallic, Plastic, Glass
  10. 10. LA Syringes
  11. 11. Specialized syringes • • • Intraligamentary syringe: ultra short needle needed, LA cartridge is protected Intraosseus syringe: narrow surgical drill needed Jet injection syringe: No needle needed
  12. 12. Assembling the syringe system      Ensure syringe has been sterilized Ensure the needle container seal is intact Break the seal by rotation Screw needle to hub Check the LA cartridge contents:       Expiry date Cloudiness Cracking Air bubbles Load the syringe with cartridge Ensure free flow of LA
  13. 13. Holding the syringe    Hold the barrel rest with the index and middle fingers of the dominant hand and the thumb rest with any part of your thumb. The syringe should be below the vision level The other hand (dental mirror) should reflect and stretch the mucosa and identify the landmarks
  14. 14. Operator and patient position  Operator position: seated or standing (depending on the procedure), to the right side of the patient except: R IANB and R GPNB, R Lingual infiltration on front of the patient.  Patient position: Semi supine (30-45 degree) position is the ideal position for LA, Supine position if there is history of fainting
  15. 15. Dismantling the syringe system  Remove needle either by:       Needle forceps Finger protector Single-handed pick up Disposable syringe has a built-in needle guard Place the needle and the glass cartridge in labelled sharps container (Orange) Return the syringe for washing and autoclaving
  16. 16. Prevention of cross infection with LA      Never use the same needle on more than one patient Never use the same cartridge on more than one patient Ensure non disposable syringes are sterilised Never re-use disposable syringes Avoid contaminated needle stick injuries by proper dismantling the syringe system
  17. 17. INTRODUCTION TO LA TECHNIQUES
  18. 18. LA Techniques The transmission of nociceptive impulses from tooth to brain can be blocked at any point on the neural pathway from the dental pulp to the cerebral cortex.     Topical anaesthesia (T A): anaesthetise the nerve endings in surface mucosa. Infiltration Anaesthesia (I A): anaesthetise the terminal nerve fibres of one or more nerve (s). Block Anaesthesia (B A): anaesthetise the main nerve trunk. Spinal Anaesthesia (SA): anaesthetise the lower half of the body.
  19. 19. LA Techniques    The choice between infiltration and regional block techniques, as far as dental anaesthesia is concerned, is governed by barriers to diffusion (Bone Density and Porosity). Maxilla: I A is successful Mandible: I A is not successful
  20. 20. LA techniques Topical: Physical, Chemical, Parenteral: Conventional, Supplementary
  21. 21. Topical Anaesthesia   Surface anaesthesia for mucosa or skin Importance: • • • •  Reducing pain of LA needle penetration Reducing discomfort of venepuncture Therapeutic e.g.. Ulcers For superficial soft tissue manipulation Effectiveness: • • • TA is more effective with non-keratinised mucosa TA anaesthetise only 2-3 mm mucosal depth It can mask superficial needle penetration only, but not pain due to rapid injection or cold LA.
  22. 22. Topical Anaesthesia  Methods of TA:  Physical: • • •  Refrigeration (Ethyl Chloride) Disadvantages: Difficult application, Inflammable, GA, however, Still used as a vitality tester for teeth. Chemical:   Gel, Ointment, Spray • E.g. Lignocaine (2% gel, 5 % ointment, 10% spray and Benzocaine (20% gel) Jet injection: LA is forced through the mucosa without needle using jet injector (1 cm depth) • Disadvantages: expensive, off-putting, noisy, hazardous
  23. 23. Technique for successful TA     Clean and dry the mucosa to remove any potential barriers (mucous, debris) Applied on limited area to avoid systemic absorption and unnecessary numbness (Gel is better) Leave for enough time (2 mn) Skin and keratinised mucosa needs more concentrated TA for a longer time
  24. 24. References 1. 2. Meechan, et al., Hand book of local anaesthesia, 1998. SF Malamed: Pain and anxiety control for the conscious dental patient, 1997.
  25. 25.  1. 2. 3. A. Choose the best answer: a Vasoconstrictor is added to the local anaesthesia (LA) in order to: A. Enhance the absorption of the LA B. Make the medium more alkaline C. Prolong the contact of the LA with the nerve fibres D. Xa and c E. All of the above All of the following are contained in the sphenopalatine fossa except: A. Maxillary nerve B. Terminal branches of the Maxillary artery C. XNerve to medial pterygoid D. Sphenopalatine ganglion E. b and c The main principal of the gate control theory of pain is based on: A. That each receptor is responsible for a specific kind of sensation. B. The central convergence of the nerve fibres. C. XThat the higher centres have an inhibitory effect on the lower sensory nuclei. D. That the thick nerve fibres (for touch and pressure) have an inhibitory effect on the nerve fibres of small diameter (for pain).
  26. 26. B. Write True or False where is applicable:  4. To do cavity preparation for amalgam filling in lower 2nd molar, it is important to anaesthetize the long buccal nerve .F 5. To do endodontic treatment in upper 2nd molar, it is important to anaesthetize the greater palatine nerve. F 6. Local anaesthetic agents of Amide type are mainly hydrolysed in liver where as Ester type agents are hydrolysed in plasma. T 7. The bony infiltration anaesthesia is mainly dependent on the density of jawbone.T 8. The ideal LA agents should have rapid onset and long working time. T 9. Most LA agents have a vasoconstrictor action.F

Maxilla is supplied by the 3……………….part of the …MAX……….......artery, mandible is supplied by the …1………….. part of the ………….….artery and most masticatory muscles are supplied by the…2 ……part of ………..…artery. 11.
