Articaine and Lidocaine, two of the most popular types, may sound similar, but there are key differences in their chemical makeups. Understanding these differences can help guide you when choosing the safest and most effective anesthetic for your practice. And, when it comes to patient experience and comfort, what could be more important? To better understand the specifics on how they vary, we have put together an illustrated diagram that – unlike Articaine or Lidocaine – is anything but numbing!
