Title: Palatal Ulceration: A Complication of Regional Anesthesia of the Oral Cavity
Author: Suliman, Ahmed M.; Ghanem, H.
Abstract: The technique of regional anesthesia involving buccal or palatal infiltration for both operative and endodontic work is usually free of complications. This technique of administration aims at depositing the anesthetic solution close to the apex of the involved tooth structures. Possible complication include needle breakage, prolonged pain, parathesia, trismus, hematoma, infection, edema, facial nerve paralysis, sloughing of tissues, and post-anesthetic intraoral lesions. 1 A possible site of soft tissue lesions is the palate. Factors such as the direct effects of the drug being administered, blanching of the tissues during injection, a relatively poor blood supply, and the possibility of reactivating the latent forms of a disease process such as herpes may all serve to promote tissue ischaemia and lead to a lesion.
