Local injectable anesthetics
A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.
Local injectable anesthetics numb the surrounding area (where it is injected) by blocking pain signals from being sent to the brain. Local anesthetics are used during dental procedures, during labor and for other minor operative procedures.
