The ‘mandibular block’ is dead!

Stanley F. Malamed (USA)

Time: 15:00 - 17:30
Language: English
Chair(s): Miguel Angel López-Andrade (Spain)
CERP: 2.5

Learning Objectives

  • > Describe the traditional inferior alveolar nerve block (IANB)
  • > List three alternative techniques to the IANB
  • > Describe the mechanism of buffering local anesthetics
  • > Discuss the efficacy of articaine administered by mandibular infiltration in adults


The inferior alveolar nerve block - a staple of dental anesthesia techniques - is oftentimes quite frustrating. In this programme, Professor Malamed will discuss alternative approaches to profound anaesthesia for mandibular teeth, including the Gow-Gates mandibular nerve block; PDL; buffered local anaesthetics; intraosseous anaesthesia; and the efficacy of the local anaesthetic articaine when administered by infiltration in the adult mandible. Is the ‘mandibular block’ dead? Come and see.
