Thanks to our modern technologies, dental treatments are now performed both aesthetically and painlessly.
“Does dental treatment really hurt?” The question is one of the first questions that comes to mind when many people need dental treatment. In this regard, first of all, it is necessary to define the concept of pain or pain. Pain is the sensation that is usually a response to external stimuli in the nervous system through perceptors called receptors. Considering the emergence of pain, it is thought that some physiological and some psychological working mechanisms are effective in pathological situations.
Since the body perceives the treatment as trauma in dental treatments, this pain should be considered as physiological pain. For this purpose, 2 types of anesthesia methods called block and infiltrative are applied. While local anesthesia provides an anesthetic effect only in a limited area, a wider anesthetic effect is provided in block anesthesia compared to infiltrative anesthesia. After this effect is achieved, patients partially perceive the sense of touch, but pain does not occur.
