Anesthetics can help relieve our patients’ pain both during and after their dental procedure. U9 Dental offers several types of pain-relieving medications, including:
- Analgesics– Common pain relievers such as ibuprofen and aspirin, typically used for mild cases of discomfort.
- Anesthetics– Can be applied topically, swallowed, or injected. Anesthetics include Novocain and lidocaine and are used for more major procedures.
- Sedatives– Medications designed to help patients relax. Sedatives include nitrous oxide (laughing gas), conscious sedation, deep sedation, intravenous (IV) sedation, and inhalation sedation.
