Abstract

Failure of local anaesthesia is a common problem faced in the clinical practice. Inferior alveolar nerve block is showing high percentage of failure among the local anaesthesia techniques. The study is conducted to understand the factors minimising the amount of needle deflection during the inferior alveolar nerve block. Successful local anaesthesia has been critical to the daily practice of dentistry. It is required to ensure maximum patient comfort while clinical procedures are being performed. The main objective of the study is to assess various factors affecting the deflection of the needle while giving inferior alveolar nerve block anaesthesia in a tissue like material agar-agar having almost similar physical properties to human tissues. This study was conducted to investigate the cause-and-effect relationship between many factors (needle gauge, tip design, angle of insertion, insertion technique and thickness of tissue …
