Calm and relaxed? Anti anxiety.
Administered through face mask, laryngeal airway or endotraycylur tube? Inhalation sedation.
Creates unconscious state, must be carefully controlled, feeling and sensation lost? General anesthesia.
Produces deadened or pain free area, sensory impulses temporarily blocked, affects nerve fibers carrying messages to brain? Local anesthesia.
Injection into muscle of upper arm or thigh, takes 20 to 30 minutes to take effect? Intramuscular sedation.
Numbs particular area, used prior to local anesthetic, desensitizes oral mucosa? Topical anesthesia.
Has 5-10% anesthetic solution? Topical anesthesia.

Should remain on mucosa tissue for 1 minute? Topical anesthesia.
Can be short(30 min), intermediate(60 min), or long(90 min) in duration. Local anesthesia.
Constricts blood vessel in turn controls bleeding at site being worked on? Vasoconstrictors.
Most common vasoconstrictor? Epinephrine.

More common-lower incidence of allergic reaction, lidocaine mepivacaine? Amides.
Patient may be allergic to one but not the other? Ester/Amides.
Drugs that can be added to the solution to make the duration time longer? Vasoconstrictors.
A state of calmness or the process of reducing nervous excitement? Sedation.
Injection near small terminal nerve branches, numbs tissue surrounding a tooth, takes 1-2 minutes to take effect? Local infiltration.
Injection near large terminal nerve branches, used on most procedures on maxillary arch and the mandibular incisors? Field block/ infiltration.
Absorbs well due to cancellous bone? Local infiltration.
Numbs one or two teeth? Local infiltration.
Injection site near apex of tooth being worked on, patient will feel numb within 2-3 minutes? Local infiltration.
Injection near main trunk nerve, eliminates sensations over a large area? Nerve block.
