Contraindications and Complications of Dental Anesthesia

Contraindications of dental anesthesia-

As such there is no absolute contraindication to the administration of anesthetic agents. There however exist some conditions where it is not advisable to give the full concentration of the drug.

High blood pressure or hypertension is one such condition where adrenaline is not included in the anesthetic solution. All the other components are the same.

Another condition is allergy to the solution. If the allergy is acute then local anesthetics are abandoned and general anesthetics are chosen.

Complications of dental anesthesia-

Complications of dental anesthesia mainly have to do with the inadvertent injection into a blood vessel. In such a case, a hematoma develops with subsequent swelling and pain. This condition is treatable and goes away in no time.
