Many procedures only require numbing certain areas of the mouth, which is where local anesthesia may be the most appropriate option before treatment. We inject lidocaine into the gums or cheek to numb the area completely. This reduces patient discomfort throughout treatment and the numbing effect wears off a few hours later. Since you are not sedated during treatment, you can drive yourself home after your visit.
