Nerve blocks are injections of a local anesthetic near the nerve. They are usually administered to a pain triggering nerve, which are typical in trigeminal neuralgia. This treatment is most successful when injections are repeated several times over weeks or months, because the pain may be relieved for much longer. Given that nerve blocks don't scar or otherwise damage the nerve, they can be repeated as necessary.
