Medical Illustrations of Dental Surgery

Dental surgery involving medical procedures to treat a pathological condition such as disease or injury of the teeth and jaw bones, has been the subject matter for the medical illustrations in this gallery. Completed by experienced and anatomically trained artists the dental surgery procedures are thoroughly researched before any illustrations are completed. The medical artist team are dedicated to providing expert high end anatomically correct illustration, to support medical communications in any business, marketing or advertisement or research environment. Covering dental, tooth, joint, associated anatomy such as the temporamandibular joint, clients can be confident to request the visual creation of any dental subject. We also have a further gallery of dental, tooth anatomy illustrations.

Our dental medical illustrations include the illustration of exodontia, the removal of the tooth from the mouth, where extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons. Tooth decay is often the reason, where it has destroyed enough of the tooth structure to render the tooth non-restorable. Carried out under anesthesia, the dentists inject anesthetic to block sensory transmission served by the alveolar nerves.

The superior alveolar nerves are not usually anesthetised directly because they are difficult to approach with a needle. The maxillary teeth therefore are usually anesthetised locally by inserting the needle beneath the oral mucosa surrounding the teeth. The inferior alveolar nerve is probably anesthetised more often than any other nerve in the body. To anesthetise this nerve, the dentist inserts the needle somewhat posterior to the patient's last molar.
