Pain threshold

The threshold of pain - is another important issue that needs to be taken into account when discussing a painless dentistry. There are people who experience significant discomfort even during dental checkup. Others may move without anesthesia root canal treatment, and some dental surgery (this, however, is not recommended, even if the patient is not against such treatment). If you know that you have a low pain threshold, ask your dentist to use a pre-anesthesia for any medical procedures - knowing that you will be given an anesthetic, you are likely to be less fearful of the visit to the dentist.

Often, however, patients who are very afraid of pain during dental treatment, a high pain threshold. These patients avoid long visits to the dentist and can endure years of discomfort caused by not completely healthy teeth. People with low pain threshold, on the other hand, refer to the dentist at the slightest hint of pain or increased sensitivity of the teeth Tooth Sensitivity - sudden pain  Tooth Sensitivity - sudden pain
 . Patients first type of fear of dental procedures is usually held as soon as they realize that the discomfort caused by them - is nothing compared with the daily discomfort that causes the aching tooth.

Often patients are afraid of pain that may occur after treatment, the effect of the anesthetic when stopped. Indeed, it happens, for example, after root canal treatment, tooth extraction, periodontal surgery, dental fillings Tooth filling - do not fear the dentist  Tooth filling - do not fear the dentist
 . Usually in such cases, dentists use a long-acting anesthetic, such as bupivacaine, or prior to the procedure given patient analgesics such as ibuprofen Ibuprofen: anti-inflammatory drug  Ibuprofen: anti-inflammatory drug
   - These measures reduce the pain that the patient may feel after treatment.

Also, dentists have the right to prescribe opioid painkillers, which can even shoot a lot of pain after dental treatment. Of course, this is only done in extreme cases, but the potential to receive, if necessary, almost instant relief from the pain, can greatly contribute to overcoming fear.

 The pain threshold | dentistry without pain - general anesthesia or local anesthesia?


Most people who have fears of dental treatment, are willing to tolerate a very strong toothache Toothache - itself does not take place  Toothache - itself does not take place
 If only to avoid visiting the dentist. Often the pain is stronger than the one they would experience during some rare dental operation, conducted without anesthesia. The reason for this is quite simple: psychologically much easier to endure the pain that man inflicts himself (in this case - through inaction) than to endure the pain that will cause someone else. Subconsciously, agreed to "take" the pain of someone's hand is seen as something akin to torture. Obviously, to the fear of pain mingled with unconscious fear of humiliation, which may not be less strong.

However, whatever the cause of your fear, it can and should be overcome. Armed with the knowledge of the impending medical procedure you look at the dentist as a partner, not an enemy, and then look at your teeth that you are right and stand to you for the sake of their health stepped over their own fears.
