What to do to make the dentist’s anesthesia go faster


The key to making the dentist’s anesthesia go faster is to increase blood circulation in the mouth area, which can be done with simple, quick tricks.

You can use techniques such as massaging around the mouth and consuming foods that are easy to chew, such as ice cream and yogurt, to stimulate blood circulation in your mouth without hurting your mouth by biting your tongue and cheeks.

4 steps for dentist anesthesia to pass faster

Here are some tips that can help:

1. Massage the mouth

Massage the mouth slowly and with little force, using two fingers to make circular movements in the region of the mouth, lips, chin, cheeks and gums, up to the jaw. Massage increases blood circulation and improves the sensitivity of the region, making the anesthetic wear off faster.

2. Chew slowly

You should chew cold and easy-to-eat foods, such as ice cream and yogurt or small pieces of frozen fruit, chewing with the side of the mouth opposite the one receiving the anesthesia, to avoid biting the tongue and cheek side that are numb and swallowing very large pieces of food. Chewing will also stimulate blood circulation, making the anesthetic wear off faster.

3. Put a warm compress on the face

Placing a warm cloth or compress on your face, close to your mouth, will also stimulate blood circulation and help to wear off the anesthesia. However, if the problem is toothache, it is better to use a cold compress.

4. Drink lots of water

By drinking a lot of water, the blood circulates faster and with the increase in urine production, toxins are eliminated more easily and thus the effect of anesthesia passes faster.

Effects of dentist’s anesthesia

Some effects that may arise in addition to the strange sensation in the mouth are:

  • Dizziness;
  • Headache;
  • Blurred or blurred vision;
  • Muscle spasms in the face;
  • Stinging or needling sensation in the mouth.

These effects usually go away when the anesthesia stops working, but if more serious problems occur, such as hemorrhage, the appearance of pus at the site of the procedure or lack of sensation in the mouth for more than 24 hours, contact the dentist so that he assesses the presence of complications and initiates appropriate treatment.

When passing anesthesia the pain may increase, so it may be necessary to take a pain reliever such as Paracetamol when the pain starts.
