At Total Dental Fitness, we use local anesthesia to ensure that you have an enjoyable, pleasant dental experience. Local anesthesia is a great alternative to general anesthesia. Local anesthesia involves numbing only certain areas of the body during the dental treatment to ensure that your experience is painless and comfortable. Injection can be slightly uncomfortable, but the discomfort is not lasting. Our caring dentists, Dr. McQuirter and Dr. Maylath, may suggest local anesthesia for performing dental fillings, dental implants, inlays, root canal therapy, or other dental treatments. To learn more about local anesthesia and how we can improve your dental experience, we welcome you to contact our Bloomfield Hills, Michigan dental office.
