Keeping Dental Patients Comfortable In Carmel

Pain isn’t fun. Your Carmel cosmetic dentist knows this, and that is why the dental team at Dental Care Today have made patient comfort a top priority. In conjunction with creating a relaxing environment, your dentist has various medications that can reduce 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 Carmel family dentistry offices and around the country are topical anesthetics. These are swabbed directly onto mouth tissue so they only numb the very surface layers. Topical anesthetics can reduce 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 specific areas of the mouth. Carmel dentists numb the mouth in this way before filling cavities, treating gum disease, or before certain cosmetic dental services.

More involved dental procedures may necessitate the need for nitrous oxide or even general anesthesia. Ask us about sedation dentistry and IV sedation.

It is very common for your dentist to recommend an over the counter analgesic to relieve pain after a dental visit. These medications include aspirin, ibuprofen, and acetaminophen.

Because your Carmel cosmetic dentist will most likely use a pain reliever during the dental visit or prescribe something for you to take after the treatment, make sure you jot down a complete list of medications you are taking, including herbal supplements, before each appointment.

I’m Dr. Dale Behner and I want Carmel residents to be informed about their dental care, especially as it pertains to pain relief during dental treatment. If you are in the Carmel area and are looking for quality dental care, please contact my office today at 317-842-2337. Our friendly staff would be happy to talk to you about sedation dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, root canal treatment, and the other services we offer.
