OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to clinically evaluate an anesthetic technique in which a second cartridge was reloaded in a traditional dental syringe and reinjected at the same site in regard to success rate of the attempted inferior alveolar nerve block. During the same appointment, a computer-controlled delivery system was used on the opposite side of the same patient to administer 2 cartridges as well. Successful anesthesia and time efficiency of the traditional syringe and… CONTINUE READING
