Local Anesthesia (Freezing) for Simple Dental Procedures

Local Anesthesia is a fast and convenient way to prevent pain and discomfort in your mouth during most procedures. Local Anesthesia is quick to administer in a two step process:

Step 1: A Topical Cream is applied to site to be Frozen

This is a quick and simple process done to dull the nerves at the injection site so that you don’t have to feel the insertion of the needle in Step 2. The topical cream takes very little time to start working, so you don’t have to wait while it takes effect.

Step 2: The Local Anesthesia is Applied

The actual injection medication which does the freezing is then applied by a quick injection. It will then take a few minutes for the medication to take effect, and Dr. Duffy and his team will check with you to make sure that your mouth is frozen at the site before proceeding with your dental work.

Is Going to the Dentist Like Putting a Cat in a Bathtub for You?

Some people have trouble calming down when they get anywhere remotely near a dentist. A sedative might be right for you and can be prescribed by our dentists before your procedure.

It is a fast acting, short term sedative that will strongly calm your nerves, greatly reduce anxiety, and will dull your awareness of the proceedings, to the point where you may not remember sitting in the chair during the procedure. A sedative is not right choice for everyone, but if you have severe anxiety about your next procedure, talk to us, and we can find out if this option is right for you.
