      Post Getting a Baby Tooth pulled! Scared! Help!

      I'm 13 and tomorrow i have to get a baby tooth pulled. It's already loose but I think it's still gonna hurt. I hate needles and get really nervous when i have to get a shot, especially in my mouth. Every time I have to have a shot i freak out and start crying. Is there anything that will numb my mouth without novocaine? And I'm afraid to ask my dentist about other stuff to numb my mouth.

      ncarley12 to the forum. Your dentist can rub a gel on your gum, it is called topical. This will numb the gum but not the tooth, when they come to do the injection you should not feel it. If they do it really slowly and take their time you will not feel it.

      When you go in tell the dentist you are afraid of the injection and ask if they could use the topical gel. For them to get a baby tooth out it should be over very quickly especially with it been lose.

      I wish you good luck for tomorrow, you will be fine. Let us know how you get on please, as it would be nice to know.

      Bless you sweet girl, and I agree with what Carole has said. I am sure you will be more than fine, it is the lead up to all of this stuff that is rotten, and our heads play games with our emotions, so try and stay focused on the end result and you will be so happy once you get to that point - take care, and let us know how you go.

      Thanks Carol and Kim but I'm kind of nervous to ask my dentist about the tropical stuff. I know he works with kids and stuff but i feel like he doesn't like me. Or just kids in general.

      Hi ncarley , sorry to hear that your dentist doesn't seem all that good with kids . Have you discussed your feelings about your current dentist with your mom or your dad (or both of them)?

      Even if I tell them I don't like him they'll still keep me there and tell me to grow up. They say that going to the dentist isn't scary. But it is. I have to be there in about an hour and I'm already crying. I'm so scared.

      Well it happend. I was scared and sobbing. I think since my dentist saw me this scared he was nicer. My mom even came into the room. The novocaine hurt but not as bad as I thought it would be. I don't know if they use like a dentist tool thing to get a tooth out but all he did was twist it with his finger. Thanks for all the help and advice.
      (p.s. I'm still scared of the dentist and novocaine)

      Well done but if it was a loose baby tooth, why couldn't you just leave it fall out or wiggle it out yourself?
      The injections do not have to hurt but not all dentists have mastered the painless techniques. Sorry you don't have more control over the situation as a child.
      It's the 21st Century.......dentistry can and should be painless but we patients come unstuck because all dentists are not created equal
