To state the obvious, nobody enjoys pain. Marketing Specialist Peery knows this, and that is why the fun dental team at Pro Systems Dentistry have made patient comfort our top priority.
In conjunction with creating a calm environment, we have various medications that can lessen and even eliminate pain associated with different dental procedures to give you a more enjoyable experience.
Some of the most common pain-relieving medications used in Salt Lake City dentist offices and around the country are topical anesthetics. These are swabbed directly onto mouth tissue and numb the surface layers. Topical anesthetics can curtail the pain of mouth sores, or they can be applied to prepare the mouth for an injection.
Local anesthetics are injected into mouth tissue (usually the gums) to block the nerve sensations to individual areas of the mouth. Dentists commonly numb the mouth in this way before filling cavities, treating gum disease, or performing cosmetic dentistry procedures.
More involved dental procedures may necessitate nitrous oxide or even general anesthesia. Ask us about sleep dentistry and oral conscious sedation.
Dentists ordinarily recommend an OTC analgesic to relieve pain after a dental visit. These medications include aspirin, ibuprofen, and acetaminophen.
Because your dentist will probably administer a pain reliever during the dental visit or prescribe something for you to take after the procedure, make sure you jot down a complete list of medications you are taking, including herbal supplements, before each appointment.
