let me just start by saying that my dentist and his staff is wonderful. they are very nice, considerate, and give me no reason to be anxious. they actually go out of their way to make me feel as comfortable as possible. however, it is nearly impossible to make me comfortable at the dentist.
today, i had to have 7 shots of novicane to make my tooth numb to the drilling and my remaining teeth numb to the coldness of the air-sucker (the teeth have to be dry for the filling). my face is numb. i can say, though, that besides the tiny bit of tingle i felt when he was drilling and i realized that my tooth wasn't completely numb, i felt NOTHING. not even the shots. he was good at what he did.
so i'll let you know how my teeth fit together once i can feel my face again.
in the mean time, i still feel like puking. i hate the dentist [office]. i tell them everytime - its nothing personal. it's the facility and the procedures, not the people. :)
