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. Alternative techniques such as the Gow-Gates, Vazirani-Akinosi, PDL, Intraosseous and Articaine via mandibular infiltration and buffered lidocaine will be reviewed.
