❇️ The Vazirani-Akinosi technique:
🔆“It is a specific method of nerve block in the mandibular region, carried out with the mouth closed.
❇️ The area of distribution of the anaesthesia includes
a) the corresponding dental arch,
b) the body of the jaw and the inferior ramus,
c) the gingiva/mucosa and vestibular periosteum, anterior to the mental foramen
d) the area of distribution of the lingual nerve: 2/3 of the anterior of the tongue and floor of the mouth, the gingiva/ mucosa and lingual periosteum.
🔆» The main indication, already anticipated, is trismus: classically this is contraction of the masticatory musculature which prevents the performance of effective inferior alveolar anaesthesia, for example, in cases of pulpitis or an abscess of a lower molar.
