5 to 3 cm (see Figure 11-2). After contact has been made, the needle is withdrawn slightly out of the periosteum or substance of the calcified ligament. 5% preservative-free lidocaine combined with 80 mg of methylprednisolone is injected in incremental doses. Subsequent daily nerve blocks are performed in a similar manner, substituting 40 mg of methylprednisolone for the initial 80-mg dose. Ultrasound-Guided Technique The patient is placed in the supine position with the head in neutral position and the lateral margin of the hyoid bone, which lies above the thyroid cartilage, is identified by palpation.

5 mL of local anesthetic per premolar is injected (Figures 8-5 and 8-6). FIGURE 8-4 Area of anesthesia after mental nerve block. Lingual nerve SIDE EFFECTS AND COMPLICATIONS Generally, the use of nerve blocks in dentistry has enjoyed an amazing track record of utility and safety. Most side effects and complications are related to inadvertent intravascular injection, the use of local anesthetics containing epinephrine, and vasovagal syncope. Occasional hematoma and ecchymosis formation after dental nerve block is encountered, especially in patients taking anticoagulants or antiplatelet drugs.

This vascularity and proximity to major blood vessels also give rise to an increased incidence of postblock ecchymosis and hematoma formation, and the patient should be warned of such. In spite of the vascularity of this anatomic region, this technique can be safely performed in the presence of anticoagulation by using a 25- or 27-gauge needle, albeit at increased risk of hematoma, if the clinical situation dictates a favorable risk-to-benefit ratio. These complications can be decreased if manual pressure is applied to the area of the block immediately after injection.
