Varies by person: Some patients respond very well to anesthetic, others need more. Some teeth (i.e. Long roots) might require a wider area to be numb, while others might be "flappin' in the breeze, " and come out with gauze - so it really depends on your case.

How long do I have to waite after i get a tooth pulled to eat normal food? It was the one on my right fourth from the front
