Dental Anesthetic

Dental Anesthetics – What You Need to know!

Dental science has developed a range of anesthetic medications to arrest any degree of pain. The word anesthetic comes from the Greek word “an,” meaning without and “aesthesis,” meaning sensation. It implies that dental anesthetics is any medication that reduces or stops the pain. It is issued to a patient before a dental procedure.

At Herzliya dental clinic, we have several general and local anesthetics that would enable you to have a pain-free and more relaxed operation. We understand that patients vary in age, size, and health status; therefore, we select the best treatment that reflects your current state. 

Types of Anesthesia for Dentistry

Partial Dental Anesthetics
A partial dental anesthetic prevents pain in the area of your mouth that is worked on. They are the most common types used in dental clinics in Herzliya. They block the pain transmitting nerves and numb the surrounding tissues. You can communicate after it is administered. They come in forms like cream, spray, liquid, ointment, or injection. The effect wears out after an hour.

Full dental anesthetics

Although a partial anesthetic is more rampant, Herzliya dental clinic may recommend a full one. This medication places the patient into deep sedation, thereby blocking all the pain and sensation to the body. This dental anesthesia can be mild, moderate, or deep, depending on the patient. Full dental anesthesia is required for complex procedures where a patient’s anxiety is getting the best of them. Children are usually anxious and cry their hearts out when they visit a dental clinic, and so, this treatment is recommended when the case is complicated. Only a licensed dental surgeon is qualified to administer it. This type of anesthesia comes with different risks.
Side effects of Dental anesthesia
• Numbness
• Sore throat or dry mouth
• Nausea
• Headache
• Tiredness

Precautions when taking Dental anesthesia

Anesthetics for dentistry is as essential as the procedure itself. The experts at Herzliya dental clinic would prescribe the best anesthesia for you, but you need to inform them about your history. Some factors to consider are:


Older people are at risk of specific health problems, and as such, their dose is adjusted to ensure their safety.


In this case, it is about you and the baby. What is right for you may be detrimental to your child’s health. Your dentist would explain how this affects you when you schedule an appointment.

Neurological conditions

People who have a history of Parkinson’s disease, stroke, mental illness, etc., may react negatively to anesthesia. Discuss with your dentist about your medical history before treatment commences.
