Pain Control

Local Anesthetic for Treatments

Dr. Wilkerson makes every effort to administer local anesthetics in a slow, gentle, and comfortable manner, thus eliminating any pain that may accompany dental treatment.

The duration of numbness after treatment varies from patient to patient and depends on what area of the mouth was treated. Generally the numbness wears off after one to two hours. Parents must be careful to watch their child for chewing or biting of inner cheeks or tongue that can cause them to be injured during the time of numbness.
