Hi Monica,

Your dentist will inject a local anesthetic in the area around your tooth so that you will feel no pain when the tooth is puled out.

Hello,
A dentist uses a local anesthetic, usually Lidocaine or Lignocaine to extract a tooth.
The effect of anaesthesia will last for about 2hrs. Gels n sprays are not effective for tooth extraction as they only act superficially and for extraction of tooth usually an injection of local anaesthetic is used which is not injected all around mouth but only around the teeth being extracted...
take care

Hi monica,
A dentist uses a local anesthetic, usually Lidocaine or Lignocaine to extract a tooth. The prick of the injection may be felt but it is as minor as a soft pinch. The area around the tooth may feel numb, once the anesthetic acts. During the extraction, you may very well see the dentist removing the tooth but YOU WILL HAVE NO PAIN.
The effect of anaesthesia will last for about 2hrs.

Dont worry...everything will be fine :)
