Fun at the Dentist's

One root canal down. Two crowns coming up.

Sorry you are dealing with this. My recommendations: take the Nitros. Tell the dentist to turn up the percentage on the gas when administering the Novocain. Crank it up! After the shot, turn it back down. I also wear a sleep mask and play with a hand held puzzle. Basically, I try hard to NOT be there and the gas sure helps. Good luck.

Texas Leigh,

It's a treat. I'll definitely be keeping your technique in mind.

In my case, it's mainly just the hassle and not the pain. I have a pretty high pain threshold but I have no hesitation when it comes to asking for more pain-killers.

I usually sit quietly and think of all of the other things I could be doing!
