What Type of Pain Medication is Used During Periodontal Surgery?

If you have problems below your teeth, in the gums, you might need to undergo periodontal surgery. Thankfully, your dentist will provide a number of pain-mitigating options. These will vary from individual to individual. Let’s look at three takeaway points.

– You might be given an anaesthetic if the procedure is lengthy.

– There are many times when localised pain medication will be injected.

– Before the medication takes hold, these injections can be slightly uncomfortable, but they will ultimately protect you from pain during the procedure.

“During the procedure, the dental surgeon uses sterile equipment to lower the risk of infection.”
