Frequently asked questions
It would mean ignoring the patient's pain caused by the crossing of the ligament.
This numbness, significantly less than after the administration of a nerve block, will soon wear off (approx. 60 minutes) due to the highly irrigated nature of the spongy bone.
Your patient will not be able to injure their lip.
The osteocentral injection, when correctly performed, enables the injection at the center of the bone in an area with a strong blood flow. We can therefore not generate necrosis with osteocentral anesthesia when the protocol below is respected.
- Do not use a highly concentrated vasoconstrictor in a tissue with low blood irrigated (papilla, ligament, summit of the septum)
- Do not inject into a septic site
- Do not carry out multiple osteocentral perforations in the same area,
- Insert the needle by 3/4 of its length to ensure an injection near the apex and not in the septum.
In this case osteocentral anesthesia is replaced by a transcortical anesthesia.
Periodontal disease requires a more apical approach than under healthy conditions.
