Today, dental treatment is performed without pain, for which various types of anesthesia are used.
Anesthesia refers to the reduction or complete disappearance of sensitivity in the whole body or in its individual areas.
Anesthesia in dentistry is necessary so that the patient does not feel pain during therapeutic or surgical manipulations with the teeth. Analgesia can be medicated or non-medicated.
Applied drug analgesia involves superficial analgesia.
What is application anesthesia
Application anesthesia is carried out by spraying a spray or applying the drug in the form of an ointment to the mucous membrane of the oral cavity. Most often, 10% lidocaine in aerosol cans is used. Application anesthesia is indicated for reducing the sensitivity of soft tissues in the place where the injection will be made, as well as for processing the mucous membrane (for stomatitis and gingivitis) and dissection of small suppurations. Application anesthesia is also used for therapeutic purposes before the removal of mineralized deposits in the cervical area, as well as when preparing a tooth for prosthetics (grinding).
