Our dentists use a local anesthetic, to effectively manage pain during dental procedures. The anesthetic is carefully administered to ensure maximum comfort and minimal discomfort for your child. The duration of numbness after treatment may vary from patient to patient, depending on the type of anesthetic used. On average, the numbness wears off after two to three hours.
It's important to note that, following a dental procedure, your child may experience numbness in their mouth. To ensure their safety, parents should watch their child and ensure they do not chew or bite their inner cheeks or tongue. We will also provide you with instructions on how to care for your child after their procedure, ensuring they experience a comfortable and seamless recovery.
