I was told by my new dentist that I needed to fill 3 teeth that would require numbing of some sort, and I am terrified. I fear needles (don’t we all?), especially when it’s in my mouth, and I also do not want any sort of gel on my teeth or gums. I’ve had multiple fillings done before and they just literally drilled my teeth without any numbing, in my experience I have never experienced pain or discomfort during any filling procedure and actually quite enjoy it. Thus it’s only natural that I feel numbing is unnecessary and would cause more stress and discomfort than the actual procedure itself. I even feel like I would rather feel pain during the procedure than have my mouth injected. I really needed to get this off my chest, thanks for reading.
