Depending on the oral surgery procedure, your oral surgeon may determine that you only need a relatively small area to be numbed so that your visit is comfortable and pain-free. There are two kinds of numbing injections. A block injection numbs an entire region of your mouth, such as one side of your lower jaw while an infiltration injection numbs a smaller area.
Sometimes trauma, gum disease, cracked or broken teeth, and tooth decay can be too significant, and despite our best efforts to save the tooth, extractions may be the best option. Here at Dental Care on Ashley Circle, we will make the process as comfortable and pain-free as possible.
