Get Numb More Easily
Difficulty getting numb is also often linked to dental anxiety. When you’re anxious, you are closely focused on pain sensations, which means you have a higher threshold for pain sensitivity. You need more numbing to control the pain. In addition, when you’re anxious, your body works harder to break down and eliminate dental anesthesia.
By reducing your anxiety and sensitivity, sedation dentistry in Butler makes it easier for you to get numb at the dentist. Sedation dentistry can also provide its own numbing. Nitrous oxide, for example, used to be the primary anesthetic for dental procedures.
