I got to go to the dentist tomorrow to get a cavity filled and I'm more than likely going to get a numbing shot with it. Any advice to deal with the pain? I seriously hate this shot more than anything and the last time I had it done I swatted the shot out of my mouth because it hurt so bad. How painful would it be if I just had them do the filling without the shot?

Is my dentist just doing it wrong then? It seems like every time they do it, the pain is worse than breaking a bone, but when I tell others about it, they say the shot was nothing

Does he put the pre-numbing goo in first?

Does he distract you by tugging your cheek while injecting?
>>
>>16592350

I don't think I've ever had the goo stuff used on me at all but the cheek tugging sounds familiar does the goo stuff help?

When they give me the N02, I barely even notice that kind of shit.

Ask for the Nitrous. Tell them you're nervous about the shot. They'll give that to you, and then give you the topical numbing stuff and then the actual shot doesn't hurt. Or you just don't notice it.

My dentist rubs the inside and outside of my cheek as she is putting the needle in and squirting that shit in. The shots she does are the least painful I've ever had, and I've had plenty of fillings (not proud of it by any means).

>>16592359

Thanks! I've had laughing gas before but I don't remember if it ever had an effect on me but I'll be sure to give it another go along with the gel

>worse than breaking a bone
What kind of hood ass fucking shit dentists are you people dealing with? It never hurts that bad for me
>any advice to deal with the pain
1- It takes them like 4 seconds you won't die. 2- It's numbing you from something that is far worse so don't take that for granted. 3- it's just a tiny fucking needle, all that pain is from is some broken tissue but other than that it's nothing like a broken bone. 4- smoke a joint maybe? 5- I hope you're a girl because you sound like a pussy

A: The purpose of pain is to help you avoid damaging your tissue.

Given that you are repairing tissue, the pain is only a sensation, not something bad happening.
>>
the shot's not really any more painful than a regular shot, so either your dentist is fucking up or you have a low pain tolerance.

I've also never had pre-numbing gel for the shot. just know that without that shot, you'd pass out from the pain

It has been a couple of years since I've last had to have a cavity filled. Maybe my pain tolerance just sucked back then and all i can remember is how sucky it was. I donate blood all the time and take shots anywhere else like nothing so I'm not sure what it is about the shot in the mouth
>>
>>16592321
Ask for the goo. He applies a gel to your gum with his gloved finger, and then you don't feel the shot.

Getting a filling without novacaine hurts like a motherfucker. Take the shot. I usually have to get another about halfway through because the first starts wearing off of wasn't all that effective in the first place. A root canal took me five.
Shit sucks but I've felt them drill and it is terrible. Especially when they hit nerve.
>>
Had this happen to me when I got my root canal. The whole point of the shot is to prevent pain. Also it feels like someone is pinching your cheek for like 2 secs and then you feel nothing. You are most likley going to get more than one but the others dont hurt at all . Just go in there and get it done with anon.

I've had my teeth drilled without any meds and I'm a 5'1" grill

man up

Not for nothing, but how does your height have anything to do with this?

Op still needs to be a man about the dentist.
