Local anesthesia is a reversible sensory loss in a defined area of the body associated with transient inhibition of peripheral nerve conduction.

The ideal local anesthetic formulation should provide profound, reversible local anesthesia with rapid onset and satisfactory duration of action, and minimal adverse effects.4 chat Let's get started!
