Local Anesthesia and you! – Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry
Our patients ask us a lot about what kind of anesthesia options we offer to help them deal with their treatment. While not all of the treatments require local anesthesia, you will likely get it while doing extractions, dental implants and root canals. You must know beforehand we mainly use local anesthesia, not Dentistry Sedation. You will be awake and conscious during all the procedure. Some people prefer Dentistry Sedation instead because that gives them peace of mind and they won’t remember anything afterwards.
Extraction is one of the procedures that most commonly requires local anesthesia. When it is necessary to remove a tooth that has been attacked by decay, the dentist will anesthetize the area of the mouth that is around the tooth. Wisdom teeth are another common cause of local anesthesia use.
Although root canal treatments have become much easier over the years, they are another example of the need for local anesthesia. When the pulp of a tooth is damaged or diseased, it is necessary to remove it and seal the part where the pulp was located, thus avoiding the extraction of the tooth. Probably, the most common need for anesthesia occurs, however, during the filling of a cavity. It is necessary to make a seal when a small section of your tooth succumbs to the cavities, creating a small area from where the dentist will remove the caries and whose cavity will be sealed.
The side effects of local anesthesia are sparse and sporadic. After local injection into your gums, for example, the medication may cause your eyelids to close or your cheek and lip muscles to relax. After the anesthetic effect passes, this numbness dissipates quickly.
