When you have a dental procedure done at PMDC Dental, you may have a Novocain injection in order to prevent yourself from experiencing pain during the procedure. It will help to know a little bit about how Novocain is used, as well as what the effects of it can be.
Novocain is injected via a needle into the area where the procedure is going to take place. It is possible to feel the pain of the needle when this happens, but more often than not the pain that people feel is actually from the Novocain actually entering the tissue and not the needle itself.
The effects of the Novocain are typically numbness and tingling around the area. After all, the idea behind the Novocain is to numb the nerves so you don’t feel the pain of the actual procedure. This numbness and tingling usually lasts for several hours after the injection, and it can be a bit disorienting. It is important not to chew the inside of your mouth where the effects are, as you won’t feel the pain telling you that you are doing damage. You might want to try and avoid eating while the Novocain is in effect, too, as you might get food around the surgical area, but you wouldn’t feel the pain, so you might not be aware of any damage the food might be doing.
It is possible that you might suffer from severe reactions to the Novocain, especially if you have an allergy to it that you were unaware of before and end up suffering an allergic reaction. You should consult with your dentist about the use of Novocain before the procedure to reduce the risk of this happening. However, in the event a severe reactions still does take place, you may feel it difficult to breath, like your throat is tight. You may also start to swell or break out in hives. Some non-allergic side effects of Novocain include irregular heartbeat, drowsiness, nausea, and trembling. Extreme side effects can include seizures. These are typically very rare side effects, but it is possible you may experience them, and if you do, you should seek emergency help.
