Hi, this is my first post here. I have been treated for dental phobia over the last two years after feeling pain of varying degrees at almost every treatment for quite a while. I had been getting on well, every 3 months I have a check up so it doesn't become too big a deal, and I have had quite a few small repair jobs done without issues, also my dentist changed anaesthetic too which helped. But today I have had a filling in the place where it all started and despite the new anaesthetic, and plenty of it, I was in a lot of discomfort. I'm usually ok after the drilling but today pushing the filling in made me yelp. I feel I have gone back a few years and will never be able to have work done in this area (lower left) again. My dentist thinks my nerves not in the usual positions in this area, but my question is is there a way to find this out? Scans or similar maybe. I don't want to swap dentist as he is really patient with me. If I can find how my nerves run surely it will make dental work a lot easier. Any ideas gratefully received.
