Intraligamentary Anaesthesia: a possible alternative for regional nerve blocks?

Description

In human dentistry, intraligamentary anesthesia (ILA) is a widely used, efficient and clinically safe anaesthetic technique. Probably due to the length of the equine teeth and the more difficult approach especially in the caudal molar region, this technique has never been described in horses, to the author’s knowledge.
The aim of this study is first to describe the technique and its possible complications or advantages based on the literature in human dentistry and clinical experience and second to show macroscopically and by CT-study the distribution of anaesthetic solution after an intraligamentary injection.
A second study is needed to evaluate the clinical efficacy compared to the gold standard (regional nerve block). But, the clinical experience and the results of this first study are encouraging. Many of the possible complications that can occur with regional nerve blocks can be avoided by the ILA. Of course this technique has its limitations as well and without further research the technique should probably not be recommended for toothsaving procedures.
