How to Give a Painless Palatal Injection

Description:
Most patients are extremely anxious about any form of dental treatment however once they are in the chair and they have had the local anaesthetic administered they generally relax into the treatment. One of the reasons for this is the anxiety related to the local anaesthesia. One of the most painful injections is the palatal injections. There area number of devices out there that purport to give a painless palatal injection (PPI). In this short video we demonstrate a technique that shows how to give a PPI without any special instrumentation except time and patience. This is something that is quick to learn and a phenomenal practice builder.

Megagen injection device

nice tip

Paul Rabbath - (9/20/2019 5:14 AM)

can this technique be used for the premolar and molar area?

james tran - (8/22/2015 4:24 AM)

Taught this at university but never used it in real life - thanks for the reminder

Howard Gluckman - (6/4/2015 7:34 AM)

James this is a MIlestone STA electronic local anaesthesia device with a very small needle but it can be done with any of the other local device.

James Albani - (6/3/2015 4:02 PM)

what syringe and needle is that

Howard Gluckman - (9/13/2014 2:52 AM)

James this is the Wand or STA local anaesthetic device. There is also a new one coming out from megagen which should be good as well.

Horizontal Augmentation Through the Ridge-Split Procedure: A Predictable Surgical Modality in Implant Reconstruction
The need for an adequate alveolar ridge width has been a long-standing principle in pre-prosthetic surgery. Since the introduction of root-form endosseous dental implants, the necessity of proper alveolar ridge width has become essential. Many surgical pre-implant bone augmentation techniques with the goal of reconstructing deficient alveolar width, height, or both have been proposed. A variety of alveolar ridge augmentation techniques for treatment of 2-D and 3-D bone deficiencies have been described and include guided bone regeneration (GBR) with a cancellous graft, onlay/veneer block graft, inlay grafting, ridge-split, vertical and horizontal distraction osteogenesis, and others.

Stem Cells in Dentistry Premium Member Content

Stem Cells in Dentistry
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells, capable of renewing themselves, with the capacity to produce different cell types to regenerate missing tissues and treat diseases. Oral facial tissues have been identified as a source and therapeutic target for stem cells with clinical interest in dentistry. In this brief presentation, Dr Ana Paz presents stem cells and outlines the clinical applications of stem cells in dentistry. Although more clinical research in this topic is still needed, Dr Ana Paz believes that the main features of stem cells in the future of dentistry should be understood by clinicians.

Laser Uncovery of Dental Implants Premium Member Content

Laser Uncovery of Dental Implants
Although many clinicians prefer to place all their implants in a one stage approach there are times when a healing abutment must be sacrificed for a cover screw and the implant buried for a two stage approach. In situations where primary stability is low, where bone grafting has occurred or where less than 2 mm of soft tissue is available then a safer approach may be to uncover the fixtures after a 3 month healing. Lasers have become a go to “soft tissue hand piece” for many clinicians when manipulating soft tissue around implants due to their minimal zone of necrosis, ability to provide ideal hemostasis and their safety of use around fixtures compared to traditional soft tissue methodologies like electrosurgical units, some of which can lead to catastrophic failures with implants. See how both diode lasers and erbium lasers can be used safely and efficiently to uncover and move tissue around implants during stage two surgeries

Positive & Negative Factors in Stem Cells & Wound Healing: Solutions for Long Term Stability Premium Member Content

Positive & Negative Factors in Stem Cells & Wound Healing: Solutions for Long Term Stability
The main factor for soft and hard tissue healing is the speed and quality of new vascularization. This lecture will present all the positive and negative factors who control the angiogenesis, blood supply and bone metabolism: -Biological factors as vit. D and cholesterol have to be checked before the surgery -The management of the flaps with sutures is one the main factor for the bone and soft tissue maintenance.. -The soft brushing technique is a new technique which increases the flap without periosteal incision nor bleeding. -Careful Implant placement without too much torque, specially in cortical bone or grafted bone at the re-entry.. -The A-PRF liquid and i-PRF are solutions to reduce the mobility of the granules (sticky bone) with an improvement of angiogenesis The use of growth factors is a stimulation of angiogenesis. The prevention of the negative factors will allow us to achieve the long term stability.

Is There One or More Reasons to Optimize the PRF & PRP Protocols? Future Trends in Dentistry, Orthopedics and Facial Aesthetics Premium Member Content

Is There One or More Reasons to Optimize the PRF & PRP Protocols? Future Trends in Dentistry, Orthopedics and Facial Aesthetics
The “Advanced” PRF (A-PRF) and “Injectable” PRF (I-PRF) protocols were designed with this new concept. Indications are numerous in all medical fields where we need regeneration: bone, cartilage, skin etc... However, the use of growth factors is not a guarantee of long term stability, as they are active only at the beginning of the process. Numerous rules of tissue engineering have to be applied to maintain the regenerated bone through an adequate blood supply: this lecture is an enlightenment on the biological and mechanical conditions for long term stability of the bone: “grafted bone” or “bone around implants”.

The Socket-Shield Technique: First Histological, Clinical, and Volumetrical Observations after Separation of the Buccal Tooth Segment – A Pilot Study

The Socket-Shield Technique: First Histological, Clinical, and Volumetrical Observations after Separation of the Buccal Tooth Segment – A Pilot Study
The “socket-shield technique” has shown its potential in preserving buccal tissues. However, front teeth often have to be extracted due to vertical fractures in buccolingual direction. It has not yet been investigated if the socket-shield technique can only be used with intact roots or also works with a modified shield design referring to vertical fracture lines. The aim of this study was to assess histologically, clinically, and volumetrically the effect of separating the remaining buccal root segment in two pieces before immediate implant placement.
