Dental Anesthesia in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Many people have significant anxiety and fear about going to the dentist because they worry about the pain that dental treatments may cause. At Northeast Dental Center, we take every possible step to minimize the pain and anxiety caused during dental treatment, and that is why we use anesthesia for procedures that may be painful. We always examine the medical history of our new patients to decide upon the most suitable anesthesia for use. Even though allergic reactions to anesthesia are very rare, we take every precaution to ensure that our patients are safe and the product being used is appropriate.

Topical Anesthesia

This is a gel-based anesthesia applied to a specific area in the mouth to numb it. The area is first dried and then swabbed with the gel.

Topical anesthesia is mainly used in tooth restoration procedures since these are not very painful. It wears off quickly and is perfectly suited for procedures that do not take too much time to complete.

Topical anesthesia is also used prior to the administration of injectable anesthesia so that the patient does not feel the pain caused by the injection. They only feel a stinging sensation as the injectable anesthesia moves into the tissues.

Injectable Anesthesia

Injectable Anesthesia is used for major dental procedures such as fillings and root canals. It works by blocking the nerves from sending pain signals to the brain. The effect of injectable anesthesia can last for several hours. Though injections might be scary for a lot of people, we only inject this anesthesia when we are sure that you won’t feel it.

We use two types of injectable anesthesia: block injections and infiltration injections. Block injections can numb a large area in your mouth (like the whole right side of your upper jaw), while infiltration injections only numb the area of injection.

Kehinde B.

Best dental place ever!!. Everyone in there are very nice and friendly. And they do the dental job very comfortable. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Alexis M.

Everyone was polite and professional. Office and the rooms were clean and well kept. Equipment was up to date and in very good shape. Dr. Oleg Amayev was well spoken and to-the-point without being curt. My teeth look/feel great after the cleaning. I had a great dental experience in no longer than an hour after a long day of work. I’ll be going back in 6 months.

Jamil S.

Since I have been a patient of Dr. Oleg he has saved my teeth and has been very compassionate and engaged in my oral health. This line of work is really the office passion. Lastly, the reminders through text and phone calls are the greatest because I always remember when my next appointment is even if I lose my train of thought of when it is.
