Dental Anesthesia

Dental Local Anesthesia and GA



Can people have dental local anesthesia safely, if they had reaction to general anaesthesia ie, airway problem?


Thank you for your question. This should not be a problem at all assuming normal doses of local anesthesia are used. It is good to remember that sometimes a drop or two of local anesthesia can "drip" down the throat and may feel very strange with perceived difficulty swallowing. It may scare you, but is not a concern. You should be fine.

Good luck.
