what to do about dental work
« on: July 22, 2022, 01:56:28 pm »
Has anyone here been to the dentist and not had a setback from the anaesthetic? Speicifcally it seems to be epinephrine that causes people problems. I've been doing well for a while so I'm scared of risking my wellbeing.

Member Trina75 had some dental work recently - her first procedure was pretty rough but the second one went well.  Here is the link to her most recent post:

My dentist uses carbocaine plain (no epi) and it's never caused me any problems.

Had two back teeth extracted 3 weeks ago, destabilised my CNS further, but if I had to hazard a guess, Id say it was the trauma rather than the epinephrine. I have to go back and have a couple of fillings soon, but I feel less concerned over that as opposed to extractions. I guess the next visit will expose whether it was the epinephrine or not.

I've had dental work done twice: I told the dentist no tranquilizing drugs because I was allergic to them.

The lidocaine for numbing didn't hurt me any.

Going around with a toothache is miserable; you have no choice in the matter really but to have it pulled.

I didn't take care of my teeth like I should have while taking psych drugs. I certainly do today.

You can call the chosen clinic beforehand and find it out. I did this way. Moreover, you can look for reviews online and read other patients' feedback. I checked Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry reviews here https://cancun-cosmetic-dentistry.pissedconsumer.com/review.html and found the answers to all my questions. It is great that people share their experiences.
