Every dental office must have topical anesthetics; substances that help relieve pain caused by dental procedures or injections. They are usually applied directly on the skin or inside the mouth.
With the development of the science of dentistry, the industry of dental supplies and products is flourishing. Here is some information about two products that are usually available at every pharmacy and dental office: Intraoral Camera
Lidocaine is a local anesthetic which has a rapid onset of action and an intermediate duration of efficacy. It comes in an ointment and a patch. It takes about 3 minutes for the area on which Lidocaine has been applied to get numbed. The numbness lasts up to 15 minutes.Lidocaine is highly significant in the field of dentistry. It can be used as an oral solution for the production of topical anesthesia of irritated or inflamed mucous membranes of the mouth and pharynx. It is also useful for reducing gagging during the taking of X-ray pictures and dental impressions.
Another product that is very commonly used and recommended by a lot of dentists is Chlorhexidine Gluconate which treats some but not all types of gingivitis. It is also considered an active ingredient in mouthwash designed to reduce dental plaque and oral bacteria. Please note that Chlorhexidine Gluconate is usually prescribed by a dentist, and that it should be used alone with no other mouthwashes unless by orders of a doctor.
Patients usually wonder why they should use Chlorhexidine Gluconate 0.12% instead of an over the counter rinse.....well, the answer is because unlike over the counter rinses, Chlorhexidine Gluconate 0.12% has a high level of substantivity. This means it keeps working for a long time after you use it.
Besides being present in oral rinses, Chlorhexidine Gluconate is also found in skin cleansers, and in small quantities it is used as a preservative.
Chlorhexidine Gluconate belongs to the biguanides chemical group. It is bactericidal, virucidal, and fungicidal, causing cell wall decomposition, leading to the loss of the cell's components.
Although problems such as deafness have been associated with the use of products containing Chlorhexidine Gluconate in cats, Chlorhexidine Gluconate is used in animals as a topical disinfectant of wounds!
