  • They numb you for a cleaning thats weird. I've heard of them doing it if you have sensitive teeth and gums. They may do it since your scared and they don't want you to feel anything so your not even more scared of the pain the next time. They rub on thing is like numzit or orajel to make the shot less painful. Did you ask them why they numbed you?

  • no i know why they numb me i ask for it lol because i AM so sensative and scared i cant see their little tools cuz i can feel them on my gums, im very sensative and scared all i can think about is them slipping and cutting my gums or something like that i was just wondering if any one else has this fear and until now i always thought it was normal for everyone to at least get the rub on stuff lol
