Many people are worried that the treatment for their ingrown nails will be painful. The truth is the faster you come in, the less likely you will need a numbing shot. Once the toenail has severely ingrown or is infected, you will need to have a shot of lidocaine (similiar to novacaine at the dentist). Honestly, that is what actually hurts! After you are numb the procedure doesn't hurt at all. BUT...if you call and make an appointment as soon as you notice the symptoms it is likely that you won't even need to be numbed.
