This is an important and interesting article that reviews the incidence of 4% anesthetic caused paresthesias and compares it with 2% anesthetic caused paresthesias. The scientific evidance on both camps are compared and it concludes that there is not enough evidance to support the notion that 4% anesthetics (Articaine/Prilocaine) have a higher rate of paresthesia than 2% anesthetics (lidocaine)
