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.
