never enough novocaine

I’m getting another filling replaced today. Last time, I was fine during the procedure, but as soon as the in-office painkillers wore off, it hurt like bloody hell for almost two full weeks afterward.


So I’m pretty sure no matter what you’re up to, y’all are going to be having a better day than I am. :coffin

But there’s no reason we all have to suffer!  Let’s see if we can find some dentist funnies to make everybody feel better…

      How about it! I hinted around for powerful painkillers, but he said, “You’ll just have to deal with it, I guess.” :coffin

      But he *also* said, that was very unusual, & after talking for a bit, we decided it may have been the dental work on top of something else, like sinus/allergy issues, etc. A pile-up of headache-inducing stuff. :BOO

      I sure hope so. This time, it was 99% painless & I’m still okay. But we’ll see what tomorrow brings. :scarymonster

    If you lived closer I’d recommend my dentist. She has really small hands and is about as painless as a dentist gets. I’ve actually walked in on my kitty chewing down on my toothbrush (now his) I keep mine in a cabinet now.

      I’m waiting for the day I can take the teeth out of my mouth & hand them over, then just put them back when they’re done. :blinky

      Oh, kittehs chew on every darn thing. Mine even opens the medicine cabinet on his own, so I have to be careful what I keep in there. :catpumpkin

    Good luck. I hate dentists.

      I don’t think anybody likes them. Thankfully, they have made strides in the pain shots & such. It’s that awful drilling sound & knowing what they’re doing that gives me the willies. :scaredcat
