If you need anesthetic injections, insist on it! Don't let them do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable. Two of my bottom front teeth still have tartar because no dentist was in the office to numb me when I had my teeth cleaned last month. Those two need the ultrasonic and the hygienist didn't want to hurt me. She even let me swish and spit because the water hose hurts. I could call and schedule an appointment any time a dentist is in the office to get these two teeth done. That's how it should be. Don't be afraid to insist on injections. Your physical and mental comfort is the only thing that matters. ?
Hi LilyFlower! Im not quite sure what to do! I have a lot of tartar and plaque on my bottom row teeth and im aftaid of pain as well! i was thinking of using topical gel all over my gums and then getting a shot of lidocaine to my gums. But idk how that reaction would work and if there is any side effects. Have you done something like this?
