The numbing effect lasts from 2 to 4 hours. Rarely does it last more than that, although there have been cases where the numbing effect lasted for days.

What is the procedure for Dental Fillings?

Dental fillings are quite simple. First, the dentist will ask you weather you want to have an injection to numb your mouth so you do not feel any pain. If you do decide to have an injection, the dentist may put some numbing gel on the place of injection or they may not, it really does not make any difference. The dentist will then leave you for a minute while the anesthetic takes affect. Next, the dentist will use a drill to drill out the decayed and weakened parts of the tooth. This may feel a bit funny but should not hurt. Then the dentist will wash and dry the now clean cavity. Finally, the dentist will place a special underlining, such as resin, to protect the nerves and blood vessels. Then the filling will be placed into the tooth. Depending on the type of filling, it will dry in a few seconds or the dentist may use a blue light to set it. Good luck on your filling. I speak on experience, I had a filling done a few hours ago.

Does dentist need novacain to fix a tooth?

A dentist uses Novocaine to anesthetize the area he will be working on so the patient does not feel pain during the procedure. Some people are allergic to Novocaine and can not tolerate the injection. Many people choose not to use any form of anesthesia. If you can handle the pain, you don't have to use it. My suggestion would be to ask the dentist to begin the procedure without it and see if you can handle it. If not ask for the injection. Only takes about 5 minutes to numb your mouth.

When a dentist gives you two shots of Novacaine what could cause the area of the shot to continue to have pain weeks later?

You may have been bruised by the shot. That happens to some people. It happens to me almost every time. The entire area where I was given the injection is tender. If it doesn't go away or start to get better soon, call the dentist and have them look at it. It could be pain from the tooth they worked on and not from the injection. I recently had a similar Experience, Where The injection was inserted into my hard palate there was swelling and severe bruising for 2 or 3 days. The skin fell off after this and I am left with a hole in my palate which is really really sore. When I went back to the dentist she said that this was an infection that had got into the injection site. One good tip here is to use a chlorohexadine mouthwash before having any work done to make sure your mouth is clean. Especially if you have a lot of dental caries

What are your options if you have a hole where a filling came out and you don't want a root canal as injections make you pass out?

You are going to have to have an injection whether you have the tooth pulled or root canal therapy. You really need to talk to your dentist to decide what is the best situation for your tooth. If it is just a case of a filling falling out though you shouldn't need root canal therapy but you might still need an injection for the repair of the tooth if the dentist needs to do any work to fill the cavity.

What is benzocaine?

Benzocaine is a type of gel that dentist's use to numb your gums before getting a shot/injection in your mouth. Dentist's use it for when you are getting the filling for a cavity. So when the injection goes in you will feel no pain at all. The gel comes in a few flavors (most often) and you will get to pick which one you want. They will usually take 1-2 drops of it and rub it on the part where the Novocaine(which is in the shot) will be injected. Therefore it will ease the pain, and you will go out smiling.
