Novocaine is the common name for a local anaesthetic known as procaine and is used to numb oral cavity during surgery or teeth extraction. So, how long does it take for novocaine to wear off?
– The administered amount depends on the concentration of nerves and the type of oral surgery.
– The side effects are rare, people with infections and disorders like Ehlers-Danklos Syndrome are less sensitive to local anaesthetics.
– Using novocaine with epinephrine reduced blood flow and helps the numbness to last.
Consult your dentist about managing numbness.
