Oral Anesthesia Training Manikin head with Light & Sensor.
Train & Practise on right delivery methodology of Intra Oral Anesthesia. The Oral Anesthesia / Anaesthesia Manikin Trainer with Light AND Sound Sensors provides a safe and realistic experience for students to practice local anesthesia techniques. The model consists of metal skull with flexible silicone face and mouth lining over an anatomically correct jaw with 28 permanent teeth, movable tongue, and jawbone with landmarks for placement of dry injection that can be visibly seen and palpated. Silicone will not show needle marks. Conduction sensors aid in practicing Gow Gates and Standard Mandibular block anesthesia. Local infiltration may also be administered in their respective regions. Electronic sensors for light and sound when the landmarks are touched by dry injection are included. The battery powered LED light on top of the manikin’s head indicates when the correct position and angle of injection is achieved by signaling a green light. Requires three “AAA” batteries (not included).
Historically dental students have been trained in the skill of administering dental local anaesthesia by injecting oranges or each other before advancing to patients.
In the increasingly litigious society we live in, dental anaesthesia is considered invasive treatment and no longer seen as a skill that should be learnt in such experimental conditions amongst dental students.
