Tooth 1.4 has pulp necrosis+acute periradicular abscess with swelling on buccal vestibule. The question is which anesthetic technique would be appropriate to achieve anesthesia for the extraction of tooth 14?
The answer is Infraorbital nerve block + greater palatine nerve block.
My question is - can we choose palatine infiltration for this patient as swelling and infection are on buccal side instead of greater palatine nerve block?
2) The table on page 153
In the table max dose of prilocaine is 500 mg and the maximum number of cartridges is 8.
