In brief: Common Procedure

Novocaine or Lidocaine are one of several types of local anesthetics administered to anesthetize or numb the areas where the teeth are to be removed.
Many patients have wisdom teeth surgery just with local anesthesia and do well. You will be able to feel the sensation of pressure and be fully aware of the procedure, but should not feel any pain (sharp sensation).
