The use of dental nerve blocks provides excellent analgesia for a variety of oral procedures, including dental extractions, as part of a multi modal approach to analgesia. They are relatively simple to perform, inexpensive, and have a rapid onset of action. Some of the more commonly used oral blocks include infraorbital, maxillary, mental and mandibular blocks which can easily, quickly and cheaply be performed providing excellent analgesia for patients undergoing oral procedures.
