Here at Sierra Nevada Periodontics and Implant Dentistry, we are proud to offer different types of anesthetics to our patients to make their visits more comfortable.

The most common anesthetic we use is a local anesthetic. This blocks pain in a certain area of your mouth. To make the injections more comfortable, we will apply a topical anesthetic to pre-numb the area. For those patients who are more anxious about injections or the procedures, oral sedatives or IV sedation can be options. Dr. French will be happy to discuss the various options with you at your examination appointment.
