assume it will be a physically painful experience. Anesthesia
blocks patients’ pain and makes dental procedures possible.
Dental assistants must know the nerves in the face and oral cav-
ity to effectively assist the dentist during the administration of
, as well as during many types of surgical procedures.
Dental team members sometimes experience physical problems
themselves, especially with the sciatic nerve located in the lower
back and traveling down the back of the thigh. This is due to the
positions they must hold for long periods of time.
Endocrine System and
Reproductive System
Functions of the Endocrine System
The endocrine system, like the nervous system, is a rol
and communication system. The nervous system acts rápidly
to transmit stimuli, whereas the endocrine system is much
slower and the results are longer lasting. The nervous system
and the endocrine system are connected because the nervous
system controls the pituitary gland and this gland controls
the other glands. The endocrine system generally controls the
body’s growth; protects the body in stressful situations; con-
trols development of sex characteristics; regulates utilization
of calcium; aids in regulating the body’s water balance; and
produces insulin, which aids in the transport of glucose into
cells (Table 6-5).
Common Diseases of the Nervous
Neuritis is the inflammation of nerves. It may be the result
of a fall or blow and can affect one or more nerves in the
body. The term neuritis is also used when describing nerve
tissue degeneration.
. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease that usually appears
in people aged 20 to 40. This disease destroys the myelin
sheath of neurons in the CNS. When this happens, impulses
cannot be transmitted to their destinations.
• Parkinson’s disease is a chronic nervous disease character-
ized by slowly spreading tremors, muscular weakness, and
a peculiar gait.
• Bell’s palsy is a sudden onset of facial paralysis.
Parts of the Endocrine System
The endocrine system is made of glands spread throughout
the body (Figure 6-11). They are grouped according to struc-
tures and interrelated functions. These glands produce secre-
tions and are ductless-there is no tube for secretions from
the glands to pass through, so the secretions empty directly
into the bloodstream and circulate throughout the body.
These secretions are called hormones. Hormones are released
from the endocrine glands. Hormones control the internal
environment of the body from the cellular to the organ level.
They are analogous to the furnaces and thermostats in our
homes. We set the thermostat to a particular temperature,
and when the temperature falls below that temperature, the

Main Function(s)
Master gland that releases hormones, which affect the Growth hormone and thyroid
workings of other glands.
stimulation hormone
Increases metabolic rate, which affects both mental and Thyroxin
physical activities. Needed for normal growth.
Increases the level of calcium in the blood. Regulates the Parathyroid hormone
calcium between bone and blood.
Releases the fight or flight hormone, which increases Cortisol and adrenalin
heart rate and blood pressure and aids in the metabo-
lism of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats during stress.,
Pancreas (Islets of Langerhans) Produces hormones, including insulin and glucagon.

Citing in APA Format All examples shown and other examples for APA citation, 6h edition, can be found at If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask your teacher or the librarian. Unless your teacher gives you other instructions, this is how the paper should be set up: Double-spaced on standard paper. Under the paragraph section in the Home tab in Word, click the bottom right corner. This opens up a box. You want line spacing to be Double. At and After should be at Opt. • 1 inch margins on all sides • 12pt. Times New Roman Font In Text Citations So the teacher knows which source belongs to which quote, you should always include an in-text citation after the quote. Example: she stated, students often had ditficulty using APA style" (Jones, 1998, p. 199), but she did not offer an explanation as to why. Long Quotes Quotations longer than 40 words need to be set apart from the rest of the text. The quote should be in a new paragraph and set inch from the rest of the text or what is comparable to one paragraph indent. Double spacing still applies. When the quote is complete, put the in-text citation after it the way you would do for any other quote and start a new paragraph with regular margins. Reference Page This is a separate page at the end of your paper. • Each citation in the text must be listed back here and likewise, each listing on this page must be quoted in the text. • The title of the page should be centered and labeled References without bolding, underlining, or any other additions. • All text is double-spaced, just like the rest of the paper. • Each separate citation should be hanging. In the examples given, this is shown. To do this, go to the paragraph section under the home tab in Word. Click the arrow in the bottom right hand corner. This opens a box: under "special", click on "hanging". This creates the hanging format. Examples: Book: Basic format sor, A. A. (Year of publication). Title of work: Capital letter also for subtitle.
