Objectives: This study was carried out to study the efficacy and the anesthetic characters of using Articaine 4 % with 1:100,000 Epinephrine as a local anesthetic drug in surgical practice through inferior alveolar nerve block and comparing it with Lidocaine 2% with 1:100,000 Epinephrine. Materials and methods: Thirty patients in two groups, fifteen patients each, undergo extraction of impacted mandibular third molar, Inferior Alveolar Nerve block had been carried out using either Articaine 4% or Lidocaine 2% Local anesthetic drugs. Results: Articaine was well-tolerated and it provided clinically effective pain relief during surgical procedures and it was as potent as Lidocaine and provided similar clinical effect to Lidocaine (Gold standard). Conclusions: On the basis of our findings, we recommend using Articaine 4% as local anesthetic drug in minor oral surgery
