I have an appt. to get some fillings in my front teeth in a couple days.
I am panicking b/c my dentist warned me that I was going to "feel" the injection more in the front of the mouth, even with a topical. I have already had some fillings done in my upper molars, and those injections were not as terrible as I expected, but now I am anticipating a terrible one, or worse, numerous terrible ones.
I have been trying to do some research, to figure out what types of injections are given in the front of the mouth, for what procedures, how painful they are, etc.
I have heard that a nasopalatine injection is the most painful and traumatic one, so now I am terrified that i am going to need one.
When is this type of injection used? What is numbed from it? And what types of procedures is it used for?
