During the Revolutionary War, the prescription for a toothache was to get it pulled. Modern dentistry has made dental treatment less painful and easier to endure than the olden days. It also results in more natural teeth remaining after treatment. Injectable anesthesia blocks the nerves and creates “numbness” during treatment. Dentists also often use sedatives to reduce anxiety, including nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or a pill.
