Aim: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the onset of anesthesia, anesthetic success and incidence of positive aspiration during administration of local anesthetic solution using the Vazirani Akinosi and Gow Gates techniques. Methodology: The study involves 100 subjects, divided into two different groups of 50 subjects each receiving Gow Gates, Vazirani Akinosi nerve blocks. The onset of anesthesia, positive aspiration and anesthetic success was evaluated. Results: In Vazirani Akinosi

The mean value of the onset of anesthesia in Gow Gates technique showed the longest 343.71 ± 153.20 s and in Vazirani Akinosi technique it was 192.86 ± 61.20 s. Conclusion: The Vazirani Akinosi technique was found to be significantly better than GG techniques with respect to both onset and success of anesthesia.
