Had not been to the dentist in 30 years due to extreme fear, especially of the injections. Of course my teeth were horrible. Could not eat properly and had stopped smiling completely. I only had 14 teeth left and I was so ashamed of myself. Just not happy at all. Did a little research for a couple of years looking for a sedation dentist to extract my remaining teeth fir dentures. Found one who said he only did nitrous. When talking to him he seemed like he genuinely cared so I made an appt to begin treatment. He was wonderful and explained everything. Went slowly making sure I was good at every step. I loved him and everyone in his office.
Fast forward to yesterday…..had 14 teeth extracted after taking 10mg Valium only!!! No nitrous even! Had NUMEROUS injections which I handled well. I am so proud of myself snd so I grateful for this wonderful dentist who did the work!! I only wish I had found him years ago and perhaps I would still have my teeth.

I am absolutely fine today. No pain st all but I have been diligent taking my pain meds as directed snd rinsing my mouth. Can’t eat or drink anything as my denture isn’t even close to fitting properly. Tell your husband to take the pain meds as told to. Yes took my first one before the novacaine wore off and then religiously every 6 hours. Even set an alarm during the night. But I have had no pain at all. What sedation is your husband having? Please let me know how he does. Good luck to him.
