I'm just looking for Some reassurance or to hear from someone who didnt manage to get numbed at the dentist on one occasion But then did on another! I have a major tooth ache since sunday night and have been taking nurofen which barely helps. I can barely touch the tooth in question even with my tongue or it sends a jan of pain. Anyway its a broken silver filling which maybe has an abscess. Obviously i am just guessing But the gum is so swollen and its so sore that its probably that. I hate the dentist! Last time qhen i was getting a filling on a lower back molar she gave me max number of injections and I swear I could feel so much pain throughout the procedure. In the end I just cried my way through iT as I just wanted iT finished. It was traumatc! So now I am terrified about today. Its an upper molar so maybe its easier to numb? I am not in a good place right now after minimal sleep and maximal pain. My work is suffering. Anyone any experience with numbing not working once But working another time? Thanks for any help or words of experience.
