Anesthetic

Injection of local anesthetic is common for most procedures: It provides patient comfort during restorative dental care.

Two or three injections are often needed with normal effects ranging from 2 – 12 hours post injection. It is okay to eat and drink, but keep in mind that sensation to biting forces and temperature is impaired. Please be careful. Almost all discomfort associated with dental procedures postoperatively is due to the injection/s and/or trauma to the gum, and not the actual procedure to the tooth itself.

Swelling, bruising and generalized discomfort at the injection site as a result of soft tissue trauma are common for up to 10 days. The discomfort may radiate and spread. Most patients feel little or no discomfort by the following day.

  • Woot woot! This place is the best! I have had several incredible experiences at this dental office. The dental assistants/hygienists, receptionists, and Dr. Goldstein have been amazing. They are all super friendly, professional, and talented. I have 2 chipped front teeth which were poorly repaired in the past by other dentists. Dr. Goldstein fixed these teeth and honestly, made them look better than before! I'm so incredibly happy with my experience here, I will not see another dentist again. I trust and highly recommend him 100%. I seriously can't stop smiling! I really love my new teeth and can't say thank you enough. Thank you Dr. Goldstein!!!
