I'm in the unusual position of preferring old procedures to new ones. I'm in my mid-40's, and had no trouble with the old method of filling cavities (injection of novacaine, drilling, etc.). But about 10 years ago I visited a dentist who used a newer method which involved spraying a stream of water into my mouth. I could not tolerate the water - gagged constantly - and had to stop the procedure. I'm still walking around with partially filled cavities. Have any procedures been devised since then which don't involve using the water stream?
