Yes: Local anesthesia may be sufficient. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

Local anesthetic: Not at all, the term local anesthesia can include moderate sedation, many procedures are done under local anesthesia, it also depends on your personality type.
