Dental Anaesthesia (51160)


The achievement of mandibular anesthesia and regional anesthesia of the oral cavity by nerve block and infiltration. The detection of complications and dealing with difficulties in achieving dental anesthesia in general practice. The knowledge of particularly specific anesthetic-analgetic methods.

Learning outcomes

In the end of the 5th semester the student should be able to :

  • Know the basic anatomical elements of oral cavity and the necessary anatomical considerations for mandibular anesthesia.
  • Know the variety of devices and instruments being used in local anesthesia.
  • Achieve general knowledge concearning anesthetics and their combination with different vascoconstrictors
  • Know the procedure of inferior alveolar nerve block on phantoms
  • Know the procedure of infiltration anesthesia on phantoms
  • Know the procedure of infraorbitalis nerve block, alveolaris superior posterior, nerves block, buccalis and lingualis nerve block and nasopalatinus and magnuspalatinus nerve block on phantoms.
  • Know the alternative techniques for inferior alveolar nerve block on phantoms, as well as the extraoral techniques of anesthesia
  • Know the reasons for local anesthesia failures
  • Know the alternative specific anesthetic –analgetic methods (use of nitrus oxide –intravenous sedation)
  • Know the nerve block techniques on children
  • Recognise and deal the topical complications of local anesthesia
  • Recognise the general complications of dental anesthesia (allergic reactions, overdose, heart failure, loss of consciousness.
