One of the most important injections in dentistry is the “mandibular nerve block,” yet it possesses a significantly high failure rate. We will analyze reasons for this failure and methods for overcoming this important clinical problem.

Patients do not want to experience pain during dental treatment. Local anesthetics are the safest and most effective drugs for the prevention and management of pain, yet, on occasion, achieving profound anesthesia painlessly can be challenging. We will discuss the means to making dental local anesthetic injections more effective and more comfortable. Topics include: articaine; buffering (the local anesthetic ‘on switch’); phentolamine (the local anesthetic ‘off switch’), and computer-controlled local anesthetic delivery (C-CLAD).
