Some patients are immune or tolerant to local anesthesia. This results in ineffective numbness and pain during dental treatment.
Patients suffer from involuntary movements for a variety of reasons, one of which is Parkinson’s Disease. This causes a moving target for the dentist.
Patients afflicted with these neurological deficits may be uncooperative due to confusion or forgetfulness.
