Simple painless extraction earlier today



I went to my dentist earlier today for an extraction and safe to say I was worried that she wouldn't be able to get me numb as I had a bad experience years ago where the dentist had to stop about 5 times as it was causing that much pain and discomfort (Different Dentist) but the one I had earlier was painless didn't feel a thing hardly felt any pressure either.

Don't let a bad experience discourage you :)
