Here at South Bay Pediatric Dental Group, we are proud to offer different types of anesthetics to our patients to make their visits more comfortable.
The most common anesthetic we use is a local anesthetic. This blocks pain in a specific area of the mouth. We often apply a topical anesthetic to numb the area before we give the injection.
For those who need more anesthetics, we offer sedatives, which are most effective if they are given before we even start; though, if needed, we can give them during the procedure. Sedatives come in many forms including pills, gas, and injections.
We also offer general anesthesia for patients who don’t want to be awake during their procedures. It is our goal to give your child an enjoyable visit, and we can offer stress-free visits by using anesthetics.
