What were your experienced with having bothing at the same time?
Tommorow I'm going to have some cavities filled. I get very bad anxiety and panic episodes even with a simple cleaning. My dentist has put me partially a ease because she was extremley nice, gentle, empathetic, and appalled to hear about the bully of a dentist I had as a child) and she has prescribed me a 5mg tab of valium an hour before hand, how ever much laughing gas they'll be using for an 87 pound female, and the standard topical numbing gel and novocaine.
I had valium and laughing gas when I was 9 and 11 for two surgical extractions. The valium calmed me down enough so that I could get in the chair and then the nitrous took over. I felt out of it, but the time flew by. I only remember the dentist asking me to open my mouth a couple of times. Afterwards, I slept for a while and was fine!
