Single Tooth Anesthesia in Cypress, TX

Single Tooth Anesthesia in Cypress, TX

Sometimes, dental procedures may require local anesthesia for the comfort and safety of the patient. Dentists use local anesthesia to numb the teeth and surrounding area so that you can undergo procedures such as dental extractions or root canal therapy. It helps reduce the pain and discomfort caused during the procedure. 

What Is Single Tooth Anesthesia?

When patients visit our office for a dental procedure, they might be afraid of the pain they might experience. We try to make all our procedures as comfortable as possible. To achieve this goal, we use single tooth anesthesia to numb the tooth and its surrounding area. When you visit our office for a procedure, we first use local anesthesia to numb the affected tooth and surrounding area. We then cover the upper or lower teeth with a cotton roll to keep the area dry and clean.

What Is Local Anesthesia?

Local anesthesia is a major type of anesthesia that is used during dental procedures. It is injected into an area near your nerves to numb the region. The medicine is not injected into your bloodstream but directly into the nerve that leads to your brain. Local anesthesia may be used for dental procedures that don't take place inside your mouth. For example, if you are getting a tooth removed, we may use local anesthesia to numb your gum tissue. 

What Are Some Benefits of Local Anesthesia?

This type of anesthesia keeps you from feeling any pain or discomfort during a dental procedure and also:
  • Helps you get through a procedure more quickly by preventing discomfort during the procedure
  • Makes you more comfortable, especially if you have sensitive teeth and gums
  • Keeps your mouth dry throughout the procedure, which eliminates many side effects caused by prolonged exposure to water
  • Provides better treatment outcomes as it prevents bone damage due to the pressure applied on it during extraction procedures 
  • Prevents sensitive areas from bleeding during the procedure

What Is IV Sedation? 

In IV sedation, we administer the medication directly into your bloodstream. This method is suitable for patients who experience extreme anxiety while undergoing any dental treatment or who need multiple dental procedures done at a time. The sedative makes you feel completely relaxed.

IV sedation has two stages: conscious sedation and general anesthesia. With conscious sedation, patients remain awake but are relaxed enough to stay still during the procedure. With general anesthesia, you will completely relax and fall asleep so that you don't feel any pain during dental procedures.
