We Keep Dental Patients Comfortable

Keeping Dental Patients Comfortable in Lewisville

To state the obvious, nobody enjoys pain. Dr. Baugh knows this, and that is why the dental team at The Lewisville Dentist has made patient comfort our first priority.

In conjunction with creating a soothing environment, we have 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 Dallas dentist offices and around the country are topical anesthetics. These are swabbed directly onto mouth tissue and numb the surface layers. Topical anesthetics can curtail 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. Dentists ordinarily numb the mouth in this way before filling cavities, treating gum disease, or performing cosmetic dentistry procedures.

More involved dental procedures may require nitrous oxide or even general anesthesia. Ask us about sleep dentistry and oral conscious sedation.

Dentists often recommend an OTC analgesic to relieve pain after a dental visit. These medications include aspirin, ibuprofen, and acetaminophen.

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

I’m Dr. Jessfor Baugh and I want patients to be informed about their dental care, especially as it pertains to pain relief during dental treatment. If you are in the Lewisville area and looking for quality dental care, I invite you to contact my office today at 469-708-4713.
