Abstract

Introduction: Being the best at managing pain is an essential but difficult aim for oral and maxillofacial surgeons. The relatively high rate of failure of the inferior alveolar nerve block (IANB) may be attributed to a variety of factors. The capacity of the different mandibular nerve block procedures to address the precise causes of IANB failure is what makes them valuable.

Objective: This research compared the effectiveness of Gow-Gates Nerve Block Technique with Conventional Inferior Alveolar Nerve Block Technique for Mandibular Nerve Anesthesia.

Results: The average time it took for anaesthesia to start for the traditional inferior alveolar block approach was 3 minutes, 17 seconds, but the average time it took for the Gow-Gates technique was much longer, at 4 minutes, 15 seconds.

Conclusion: The results of the current investigation found no statistically significant differences between the Gow Gates approach as well as the traditional inferior alveolar nerve block in terms of anaesthetic efficacy.

Keywords: Local anaesthesia, Gow-Gate, IANB, maxillofacial, mandibular nerve, lip anesthesia
