Concerns about discomfort can keep many people from visiting the dentist.
Since a local anesthetic is injected into the gums or cheek before certain treatments, such as root canals or extraction, you may be concerned about the potential for pain from those injections.
At Elevated Family Dentistry, our dentist, Dr. Garon Larsen, and our team are dedicated to keeping you as comfortable as possible throughout your entire appointment, no matter what your treatment may be. We offer topical anesthetic in Highland, Utah, as one of our sedation options. Topical anesthesia comes in the form of a gel, cream or spray which can be applied directly to or just below the gums. This has an immediate numbing effect which can ensure that you do not experience discomfort from local anesthetic injections or other minor treatments. In some cases, there may be a risk of an allergic reaction, but we will be careful to avoid this issue.
