Pain during filling

Even though my dentist gave me several numbing injections I still felt pain during a filling. I'm so worried that the injections just don't work for me, and I need to have a root canal done. I just can't stand the thought of going back.
Is there a reason why the injections don't seem to work for me? I'm incredibly anxious and don't know what to do.

There are lots of reasons why local is less effective in some situations.

Have a read through this and see if it helps any...
