So I had a dentist appointment yesterday. I went to it only to find out they didn't take my insurance (story of my life) so they gave me some numbers to several different dentists. I made an appointment to the one I was given that is in a sketchy unmarked building in one of the sketchiest parts of this town I have ever seen. I was desperate so I was left without choice. I waited forever but I didn't mind because I was going to be seen. I finally got back there and the guy was pushy, he didn't give me enough Novocaine, and then went out of his way to make me feel like feeling pain and crying was uncalled for. He kept telling me I was feeling pressure, not pain, and I tried as hard as I could to push through what I knew was pain, but I had to cry out a few times. I said "I'm sorry, I'm trying to push through, I just need to make a noise every once in a while. Is that okay?" The guy actually said no! During the last extraction he finally got enough Novacaine in there to make the pain stop and the rest went smoothly I guess (Other than the fact that it felt like he was going to break my jaw) As the cherry on top of the cake, he sent me off without so much as a prescription for ibuprofen. I would make a Yelp review for them, but I have no idea what they are called since they didn't have any signs anywhere on or in the entire building. Can someone tell me if I'm just overreacting because I've never done this awake before? On top of my excruciating pain today, yesterdays event was so traumatic I had nightmares last night and I'm just hoping they won't continue. Please someone just tell me I'm not still crying for no reason. I'm so tired of being treated like a sub-human by dentists because I have dental problems.
