Product introduction

Themicaine 2% Injection is a local anesthetic. It is used during minor surgical procedures such as dental, oral, diagnostic, or other therapeutic procedures to anesthetize or numb the surgical area.

Themicaine 2% Injection must be administered by healthcare professionals. It blocks the pain signals to reach the brain by temporarily numbing the surgical area and helps to perform a painless procedure.

This medicine is generally safe with little or no side effects. However, it may cause injection site reactions, such as pain, swelling, and redness, in some people. These are usually mild and short-lived. If the numbness or other side effects persist at the injection site, consult your doctor without any delay.

Before using Themicaine 2% Injection, it is very important to tell your doctor if you have any underlying heart disease or are taking medicines for heart rhythm problems. Ask your doctor for advice if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Also, the medicine may cause dizziness. So avoid driving or operating heavy machinery while on medication.

Benefits of Themicaine Injection

In Local anesthesia (Numb tissues in a specific area)

Themicaine 2% Injection is a local anesthetic. It makes the oral skin numb. It can be used to relieve pain, irritation, or itching caused by a wide variety of conditions. It is generally very safe, works quite quickly, and will reduce the discomfort that might be caused by mouth ulcers, a small cosmetic or other surgical procedure.

It is also used in procedures requiring the insertion of a tube into your mouth, which can otherwise be uncomfortable and even painful. Lidocaine can be applied to the surface of the tube before it is inserted. This will both lubricate the tube and give an anesthetic effect, making the procedure more comfortable.
