Hi Monica,

Your dentist will inject a local anesthetic in the area around your tooth so that you will feel no pain when the tooth is puled out.

Hello,
A dentist uses a local anesthetic, usually Lidocaine or Lignocaine to extract a tooth.
The effect of anaesthesia will last for about 2hrs. Gels n sprays are not effective for tooth extraction as they only act superficially and for extraction of tooth usually an injection of local anaesthetic is used which is not injected all around mouth but only around the teeth being extracted...
take care

Hi monica,
A dentist uses a local anesthetic, usually Lidocaine or Lignocaine to extract a tooth. The prick of the injection may be felt but it is as minor as a soft pinch. The area around the tooth may feel numb, once the anesthetic acts. During the extraction, you may very well see the dentist removing the tooth but YOU WILL HAVE NO PAIN.
The effect of anaesthesia will last for about 2hrs.

Dont worry...everything will be fine :)

hi monika, while getting the tooth pulled out a local anaesthetic usually LIGNOCAINE or LIDOCAINE is used..gels n sprays are not effective for tooth extraction as they only act superficially and for extraction of tooth usually an injection of local anaesthetic is used which is not injected all around mouth but only around the teeth being extracted..the anaesthetic will last for 90 to 120 minutes.

u will not feel any kind of pain while getting ur tooth pulled be courageous n get your treatment done.. hope this answer will be helpful to you..

Dear doctor, I am in great need of ur advice and help out here…I hope u can help me with this… I shall explain it to u in detail… I am a chem. Engg student doing my final year-21yrs old- im going thru sm multiple complications-it all started with the lower wisdom tooth pain…my tooth did break a bit and the pulp was exposed- and I was suffering from inflammation and severe pain- but it was around midnight so the dental clinic couldn’t cm of any help- so I had taken a pain killer vaccination at the hospital and they asked me to cm in the morning…. Couldn’t sleep for the whole night and my right side near the ear-the nerve was bulging out bcoz of immense pain…I couldn’t do much with it and had to tie a towel tight around my face bcoz it was paining to the limit…so I finally did meet the doctor- he took an xray and told me tht my tooth can’t be save and he even told me tht we need to take out the upper tooth also bcoz teeth must be in proportion…he took at my tooth while it was paining-gvng me 2 local anesthesia- and then he gave those stitches… I had gone back home and then was getting this weird jerks but just one /day so I thought tht the stitches might be pulling and its in the process of recovery but on the 4th day I got like 7-8 jerks- and in these jerks my mouth use to open to the full and then close-all in a fraction of a second- involuntary ones- and its use to be very painful becoz the upper tooth use to crush my tongue,cheek ot the extraction area and I would get an electric shock feeling near my ears when this use to happen….the doctor was saying tht it might be bcoz of the stress- but I told the doctor tht y on earth will I have any stress or y willo I think of my tooth once its gone…..but then he gave me anxit to have- to reduce sm anxiety which I didn’t even have-before tht I was having amoxyllin and bruffen….the thing took place again on the 6th day and it was for 15-16 times together but the next day was the day to remove my stitches- and once the stitches were out the jerks stopped- but till then the dentist had referred me to psy and neuro depmt where they gave me duzela ,zapiz and tegretol to have, for fever and stuff- they had taken 4 types of blood tests(for biochem, malaria, haemoglobin etc) and a chest scan- and all was normal….the gen phy gave me hifenac –a painkiller for fever and weakness…… Today is the 42nd day and im still persisting with complications tht are increasing day by day- im getting half head pains like migraine and severely near my ears and at the spinal area- the ent guy said it might be TMJ syndrome but the dentist checked and told tht I dnt have tht problem….the dentist is saying tht of excess stress I have got facial muscle dysfunction which is found in ladies over age 40- but he says tht I show those symptoms- bcoz of which my nerves are acting abnormally- so he gave me relaxon for muscles……but the thing is still there- I dnt knw wht to do- now these doctors are giving me stress becoz they r unable to treat me- will u pls guide me as to what shall I do- what tests should I go thru like teeth xray, or EMG or ctscan or MRI- or anything to know what the problem really is- im even experiencing pain in my lower left side-is it a kidney problem….im afraid- tht is there any infection of any sort in my brain, or tumor, or cancer- I am forced to think all of this bcoz im fed up of wht these doctors and wht they are doing to me….they just give me medicines and ask me to leave without going thru any examination…..A friend of mine just got a brain stroke and his half of the body got paralyzed bcoz of sm infection in his brain- and the doctors are telling tht it was due to stress…..is tht the same in my case- coz from the past 3-4 days the pain is continuous and im not at all at ease……please doctor help me out…im tired of being sick- I wana go outside and play like my other friends….

Hey there, I was just bathing my 4month daughter and as I was getting he out I slipped on the wet floor, causing her to go under for a moment and also unfortunately causing her to bump her head on the bath also. She has a red bump on her head, and is a little lethargic (although she is due to go to sleep as well) Should I keep her awake? or can she go to sleep while I monitor her closely? I have also given her panadol to help with the pain she may be feeling after the bump.
