EP177: What Nerve Block Technique is Easiest to Learn, Jaw Fractures and Impacted Wisdom Teeth, BMP for Alveolar Cleft Grafting and more
This week we discuss some pretty interesting articles from the Journal of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery the first one discussing the Akinosi nerve block technique versus the inferior alveolar nerve block technique for beginners to see whether there’s an ease in learning and decrease complication rates for beginners. I didn’t ask us the use of recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein for use in grafting of the Alveolar cleft. I then proceeded on to discuss where there’s a correlation between an impacted mandibular third molar, the type of impaction and mandible fractures and then the type of mandible fractures and believe me when I tell you there is. You’re going to have to listen to this episode to find out what that correlation is.
