Anesthetic Efficacy of Combination of 4% Prilocaine/2% Lidocaine with Epinephrine for the interior alveolar nerve BlockL
CE Hours: 1.0 CE hour
Description: Prilocaine plain has a high pH and concentration (4%), which could decrease the pain of injection and increase success. The purpose of this study was to compare pain associated with anesthetic solution deposition and the degree of pulpal anesthesia obtained with the combination of prilocaine and lidocaine versus a lidocaine and lidocaine combination when used for inferior alveolar nerve blocks (IANBs).
At the conclusion, participants should be able to:
- Evaluate if the combination 4%prilocaine/2% lidocaine with epinephrine resulted in an increase in anesthetic success of the inferior alveolar nerve block when compared to two cartridges of 2% lidocaine with epinephrine
- Describe if 4% prilocaine resulted in less anesthetic solution deposition pain.
- Discuss the side-effects when prilocaine is used clinically.
