Achieving profound anaesthesia during root canal treatment is a corner stone in endodontic practice and dentistry. Profound anaesthesia during RCT benefits not only the patient, for obvious reasons, but also the dentist who will be less stressed and worrying about patient reactions and sudden movements during the treatment.
But these are cases where the nerves are chronically inflamed and patient has moderate to severe pain. In such cases giving supplemental injections in addition to the other local anaesthetic techniques is beneficial. Being able to fall back on both sets of techniques provides the dentist the confidence to provide pain free treatment for the patient.
