Anaesthesia is a state of controlled, temporary loss of sensation or awareness that is induced for medical purposes. Dental anaesthesia is a form of local anaesthesia induced by a chemical named lignocaine.

Anaesthesia is required for treatments that are otherwise painful. Mostly, dental anaesthesia is required while performing surgical procedures. Sometimes, in certain procedures, general anaesthesia might be needed as well.

How long does dental anaesthesia last?

Dental anaesthesia generally lasts 1-6 hours approximately. During that time there is a sense of numbness on the tongue and lips.

What are the things you should be careful about if you are given a dental anaesthesia?

Since dental anaesthesia causes a transient numbness of your tongue, lips and cheek, some may have an urge to bite on them. Once under the effect of anaesthesia, you must be careful not to bite yourself because once the effect of anaesthesia is over, you will start to the pain caused by trauma due to your biting.
