What hallucinations do you get from ether anesthetic?

What hallucinations do you get from ether anesthetic?

None usually: Pure ether has not been used in anesthesia in the U.S. For many years. The newer anesthetic gases such as sevoflurane and Desflurane have been chemically modified to make them safer. When you have general anesthesia today, an intravenous medication such as Propofol usually makes you go to sleep, and breathing gas keeps you asleep. No hallucinations are usually experienced. ...Read more

Are novocain (procaine) injections at the dentist painful?

Are novocain (procaine) injections at the dentist painful?

Minimal: I have many patients that fear this, and most are surprised when they are done, admitting they are not that bad. There are several locations to get injections.

Will my fillings hurt after novocain (procaine) wears off?

Will my fillings hurt after novocain (procaine) wears off?

Short answer, "No": You might have some residual discomfort after the "novocaine" wears off. It might be due to the actual injection and/or the drilling of the tooth, but if there is any discomfort, it should resolve very rapidly. If not, go back to your dentist. Sometimes the bite needs a little refinement, or there are other underlying problems that have to be addressed, especially in deep, extensive fillings. ...Read more

Does it hurt to get a novocain (procaine) shot at the dentist?

Does it hurt to get a novocain (procaine) shot at the dentist?

Not really: Pain is actually very subjective, while someone may feel it hurts terribly, someone else may not feel it at all. A big part of it is how 'heavy-handed' or gentle your dentist is, and you can talk to some of his/her patients to get an idea. Ask your dentist to put a bit of topical anesthetic before you get the shot, and it will help you in feeling less of the pinch of the needle. ...Read more

If i ice the side of my cheek where the shot of novocain (procaine) was, will the numbness go away?

It will go away: Regardless of what you do. If you apply ice, you decrease circulation and will actually cause it to take longer to go away. Mild exercise might speed up the process. Personally, i would just wait it out. ...Read more
