  • Yes! And I flinched and my dentist literally bitched me out and now I'm scared to go to the dentist. My next dental appointment will be made with one who uses lasers, not drills. And drug me up!

  • I have not, but know people in the family who have pain. They always get novacaine.

  • Years ago dental work was painful. There is no reason to have pain today. The worse is the novacaine shot. And if they know what they are doing that does not even hurt.
    You should be fine.

  • All the time! I could never be numb. But I haven't been able to afford dental care since the '90's.

  • Not pain just fear! I'm phobic now and hoping sedation works for me :-(
