Anesthetic while fasting
Salaam Respected Ulema
If a person needs to remove a tooth during Ramadan and local anisthetic needs to be injected in and around the gum does that break the fast?
One may go to the dentist while fasting,
Injection in and around the gums will not break your fast however if getting dental work done will put you at risk of swallowing water during the process then you should avoid this and postpone it if possible till after Ramadan as anything swallowed even accidently will break the fast and necessitate making it up (qada).
