Keeping Dental Patients Comfortable in Maple Grove

Family Dentistry Maple Grove

Pain isn’t fun. Your Maple Grove dentist knows this, and that is why the dental team at Arbor Lakes Dental have made patient comfort a top priority. In conjunction with creating a relaxing environment, your dentist has various options 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 Maple Grove family dentist 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. Maple Grove dentists numb the mouth in this way before filling cavities, treating gum disease, or before certain cosmetic dentistry procedures.

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.

Make sure you jot down a complete list of medications you are taking, including herbal supplements, before each appointment with your Maple Grove cosmetic dentist.
