ABSTRACT
The article shares the results of a study that was conducted to determine the effectiveness of the herb clove as a topical anesthetic and antiseptic during dental procedures. Dentists have relied on the anesthetic benzocaine, yet it can be toxic and present various side effects. The study showed that both anesthetics provided similar pain relief and only 5% of those tested displayed side effects from the clove.
