What is TuttleNumbNow?

TuttleNumbNow (TNN) is changing forever the way dentistry is practiced. TNN is a revolution, a complete rethinking and retraining of local anesthesia, introduced by Dr. Gregory K. Tuttle.

The system includes a new primary injection of choice for lower posterior teeth replacing the IA nerve block. We know that for some teeth a simple infiltration is adequate, but if a tooth requires more, we’ve developed a step-by-step protocol for local anesthesia.

The TuttleNumbNow system is designed for the most experienced dentist and specialist, down to the recent dental graduate or hygienist. Join us in practicing the most innovative, cost-effective approach to dental anesthesia.

It's all about the patient

Going to the dentist can be an awful experience for some patients. With TuttleNumbNow the goal is no numb lip, no numb tongue, and you can work in all four quadrants without rescheduling patients for multiple visits. It eliminates frustration for both the dentist and the patient! 

Find a TNN Dentist

As the news of TuttleNumbNow spreads, we often get asked by patients if there is a TNN dentist nearby.

We've created an interactive map of those trained in TuttleNumbNow, so now patients can find you!

Now Launched - Find a TNN Dentist Map

Patients often visit our website looking for a dentist. They may have had difficulty getting numb or want to find someone they trust.

Instead of sorting through our TNN dentists, patients can now find one on their own!

We launched a new interactive map where patients can scan to see a dentist who has purchased the TuttleNumbNow training. 

Hands-On Training in Texas

Special thanks to Dr. Rick Coker of Tyler, Texas for arranging a TNN hands-on Training and Golf Tee Time for a group of interested dentists in the East Texas Community. 

One highlight was talking with Dr. David Bright, an endodontist in Tyler, Texas who regularly sees tough-to-numb patients. He volunteered to be in the chair when Dr. Tuttle gave the TNN intraosseous injection - He wanted to know what his patients would feel. To his surprise, it was very straightforward! He rated it a 0.05 out of 10 on the pain scale!
