Depending on the oral surgery procedure, your oral surgeon may determine that you only need a relatively small area to be numbed so that your visit is comfortable and pain-free. There are two kinds of numbing injections. A block injection numbs an entire region of your mouth, such as one side of your lower jaw while an infiltration injection numbs a smaller area.
Orofacial pain is caused by a number of clinical problems, including issues with the chewing muscles and joints. Orofacial pain can include migraines, headaches, muscle spasms, tooth pain and more. Your Toledo Family Dental Care dentist can use skills learned from the American Academy of Facial Esthetics (AAFE) to treat orofacial pain with several treatment options.
Sometimes trauma, gum disease, cracked or broken teeth, and tooth decay can be too significant, and despite our best efforts to save the tooth, extractions may be the best option. Here at Toledo Family Dental Care, we will make the process as comfortable and pain-free as possible.
