    • 1915, William Julius Lederer, The Principles and Practice of Tooth Extraction (The Rebman Company), chapter VI, page 173:
      In order to anæsthetize these various branches we have to block them as they enter or leave their bony foramina. Thus to reach the anterior superior dental branch we have to make an injection at the infraorbital foramen; this will anæsthetize the central, lateral and canine teeth, and by osmosis via the ganglion of Bochdalek affect sensation in the middle superior dental branch, and therefore anæsthetize the biscupids more or less.
