Lingual Zing

So when I give the IA Nerve Block my patients experience the “lingual zing”, is there any way to prevent this?

Due to patients’ anatomy all being unique, there really is no good way to avoid the “zing.” The “zing” happens because the needle activates the lingual nerve as you pass it towards the IA. Without X-ray vision there’s no way to know exactly where the patient’s lingual nerve is located.
