Ogden Dentist Video #8:
How painful it is during a Dental Procedure?
In this video, Dr. Jim Ellis, DDS (a dentist in Ogden, Utah) discusses how painful it is during a dental procedure.
You shouldn’t experience any pain during procedures. I know people say that, and past experiences may tell people that they will experience pain, but dentistry should not be painful, no matter what. There are very rare occasions where it may be necessary to actually sedate a patient completely, but those very few and far between.
Some medical conditions that might necessitate that, but if you are feeling any pain whatsoever you should inform your dentist that you’re feeling pain and discomfort and he or she should know how to alleviate that. There are different places where we can do injections. Different types of anesthetic we can even use. We can change the anesthetic that we use. Give you more time. Medicate you before you come into the office so that you’re not feeling as much apprehension. Use of nitrous oxide or things in the office. Dental procedures should not be painful.
Hopefully, this video has answered your question. If you have any other questions, we have a whole library of videos. If there is something that you have that hasn’t been answered, you can feel free to give me a call at (801) 783-3490. Thank you so much and have a good day.
