If it involves needles no matter how small.... that would not be topical anesthesia.

Saiga410: Isitoveryet: The fear of injection is one of the main reasons that patients develop dental phobia and avoid dental treatments, which negatively impacts oral health.

I hate to be that guy BUT I'm that guy.

/needles & snakes

I actually had an old filling ground out and replaced Monday.  The dentist noticed it was cracked and needed replaced.  Fun fun.  Right in the back, needed about three deep cheek/muscle injections and the about half way through he got close enough to the nerve bundle to make the numbing not really be effective.  I can work through it doc, keep working.   Whhhharrrrrrrr, smoke flying with a white hot pain making me sweat.... whurrrrrrrr as they clean it up.  My whole scull vibrating.... scullllk as they put some type of plastic over the ground out hole, the smell the taste... wonderful.  The UV hardener, well that wasnt bad actually.  Cannot wait for the sensitivity to diminish.


I have one to two fillings in each molar/pre-molar and they're starting to age out so I feel your pain. I'm four down on re-grind and fill.

I also love how people say things like "I haven't been to the dentist in years and now I have a filling."

Please... I do three cleanings a year and I still have to have some work done every couple years.

Being born with good teeth isn't as awesome as being born rich, but it has to be up there on the list.

When I was a kid my vaccine shots were several needles that would leave a smiley face on my arm.

The whole article made me squirm.  Flu shot is nearly painless, yet for some reason I'm sweating bullets before and after.
Irrational fears...

So Farkers can say they are training to be dentists when they ask ladies if they'd like a little prick in their mouth.
