Administration of Local Anesthetic while Positioning the Needle during Inferior Alveolar Nerve Blocks did not Affect Patients' Reported Pain on Injection

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Article Title and Bibliographic Information: Injection pain of the inferior alveolar nerve block in patients with irreversible pulpitis. McCartney, M., A. Reader and M. Beck (2007). Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol Oral Radiol Endod 104(4):571-5. Level of Evidence: Level 2 (Limited-quality, patient-oriented evidence). Strength of Recommendation Grade: Not applicable. Purpose/Question: This retrospective analysis evaluated the effects of gender, phase of injection (needle insertion, needle positioning, and anesthetic deposition), and whether anesthetic was administered during the needle positioning phase on reported pain levels while administering local anesthetic via inferior alveolar nerve block in patients with irreversible pulpitis. Source of Funding: Information not available. Type of Study/Design: Retrospective cross-sectional study.
