Local anesthetics, in conjunction with effective topical anesthesia, have virtually eliminated the discomfort of numbing areas to be worked on. We use this depending on the procedure. By using the proper amount of anesthetics we ensure that your procedure is as comfortable as possible. Anesthesia should wear off shortly after you leave the office, so that you can continue on with the rest of your day without the numb feeling, and, of course, the problem that was plaguing your tooth earlier.
