In the case of local anesthesia, anesthetics are used to numb a specific area of the body during treatment. It can prevent pain during surgery, treat painful conditions, and manage post-surgery pain after the procedure. Compared to general anesthesia, local anesthesia does not cause the patient to lose consciousness. Local anesthesia is safer, easier to administer, and faster recovery time than general anesthesia.
Local anesthetics are effective by blocking the transmission of signals to the brain. It means that the area to which the medication is applied will be free of pain. Any changes involved, such as pressure, can still be felt. After the medication wears off, the pain will return.
A variety of medical procedures rely on the use of local anesthetics. A dentist, anesthetist, surgeon, or general practitioner can all use them. Gels, pastes, creams, injections, and ointments are all options for local anesthetic.
