Re: [IP] local anesthesia for inserting sets



You missed my ultimate favorite....
    AMBESOL( for gums)
You can get it from any drug store.  its cheap, convenient and numbs the
site before you can even say....AMBESOL  hahaha

No, seriously, it does work.  Used it all the time before the sof-serter
came out and I actually had to jab that thing into me.  No fun!

Try it -it does work!
