Sometimes, a prolonged time to go to a dental clinic can increase the chance of having a dental disease. So, how do dental professionals deal with this problem? For lengthy procedures such as major surgeries, general anesthesia may be an option. On the other hand, mild surgeries or dental cleaning may need local or intravenous anesthesia instead. Furthermore, IV sedation during dental treatment helps patient relax and feel safe. It can be helpful for patients who have anxiety and stress during a tooth extraction.
One of the main reasons why people stress about going to the dental clinic and would rather take pain medications to cope with a toothache than to go visit their dentist is the fear of experiencing worse pain in correcting their dental problem.
