Abstract

Introduction

Administration of local anaesthesia is one of the commonest procedures undertaken in dentistry. It is an effective and safe means of pain control that allows routine procedures to be undertaken. There are some neurological complications arising from both inferior alveolar nerve block and posterior superior alveolar nerve block. However if complications occur dental students should know how to manage them.

Materials and Methods

This study was conducted among 100 dental students in Saveetha dental college. The questionnaire consisting of 12 questions were prepared regarding their knowledge on neurological complications and its management.

Results

30% of dental students have inadequate knowledge on neurological complications and its management while administering local anaesthesia, 60% of dental students have moderate knowledge on neurological complications and its management while administering local anaesthesia, 10% of dental students have adequate knowledge on neurological complications and its management while administering local anaesthesia.

Conclusion

Most of the dental students have moderate knowledge on neurological complications and its management while administering local anaesthesia.
