Austin Children’s Dentistry makes every effort to administer local anesthetics (Novocaine) 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 drug was used. Generally, the numbness wears off after two to three hours. Parents must be careful to watch their child for chewing or biting of lips, inner cheeks or tongue that can cause them to be injured.

We invite you to call us at 512-682-KIDS to learn more about pain control and schedule your child’s appointment with one of our caring pediatric dentists in Austin, Hutto, Leander or Round Rock, Texas.
