The management of pain with hemostatic control through local anesthesia by dental hygienist requires a thorough understanding of the anatomy of the skull, trigeminal nerve, and related structures. The dental hygienist must also know the location of certain adjacent soft tissue structures, such as major blood vessels and glandular tissue, so as to avoid inadvertently injecting them.
