German term or phrase: Leitungsanästhesie
item on a German dentist's bill, type of local anesthesia

conduction anesthesia, block anesthesia, nerve block...
Explanation:
When I had to go in for surgery to have a broken wrist reset, the anesthesiologist called this a "nerve block" (which may be the US term).

conduction anesthesia, block anesthesia, nerve block, nerve block anesthesia, regional anesthesia, block
[Reuter & Reuter, Medizin]

Since I always like to know what's involved, I assume others do, too. So here goes:

Leitungsanästhesie (Anästhesie*) f: Nerven- od. Leitungsblockade; Form der Lokalanästhesie* mit perineuraler Anw. von Lokalanästhetika im Nervenverlauf; nach Applikationsort bzw. Nervenart werden unterschieden: 1. periphere Nervenblockaden: a) L. i. e. S., vorgenommen am peripheren Einzelnerven (z. B. Pudendusanästhesie*); b) vegetative Nervenblockade (i. d. R. als Sympathikusblockade*); c) Plexusanästhesie*; d) Paravertebralanästhesie*; 2. zentrale Nervenblockaden (auch rückenmarknahe Anästhesie): a) Periduralanästhesie*; b) Spinalanästhesie*;
Anw.: v. a. bei kleineren (peripheren) Eingriffen, erwünschter Patientenmitarbeit (z. B. in der Gebh.), ambulanten Pat. od. Risikopatienten zur Vermeidung einer Narkose.

local anesthesia


Explanation:
there might be a special term but unless the context is about exactly that I would use the above.
Local anesthesia is exactly the numbing of the the nerve cord (Leitung) leading to and from the location to be operated on (tooth to be pulled out)
