The mandibular infiltration anesthetic technique is an effective method of anesthetizing mandibular incisors. Four percent articaine with epinephrine appears to be the preferred solution.
How does anesthesia lower molars?
To extract the lower anterior teeth, the oral surgeon needs to anesthetize the pulpal tissue of the accused tooth and the surrounding tissues. The lingual nerve innervates the lingual soft tissue to the lower teeth, this nerve usually anesthetized alongside the inferior alveolar nerve by a block technique.
Where do you give a mandibular block?

Why is local anesthesia difficult for the mandibular ramus?

Where is the mental foramen located in the mandibular premolar?
Depending on the anatomical location of the mental foramen, 1 st molar anesthesia may be obtained as well. The mental foramen is typically found adjacent to the root of the mandibular premolar and may deviate between the apices of the 1 st premolar and the 1 st molar.
Can a mandibular injection miss the inferior alveolar nerve?
In many patients the standard point of injection is too low resulting in deposition of local anaesthetic solution at or below the level of the mandibular lingula and thus missing the inferior alveolar nerve.
