Well I survived the dentist. I went there and felt a little nervous but didn’t think it was that bad. I told the dentist I was nervous, hoping he’d go easy on me. That helped cause he was very wonderful trying to talk to me about other things so I wouldn’t be as nervous as I was. Then he explained each step of what he was doing and reassured me as much as possible. When they pulled out the needle for novacaine, I thought it was a joke! From what I remember there was a huge needle, and they seemed to be in your mouth forever. He pulled out a little needle like a syringe! And I didn’t barely feel anything. What I did feel was bearable. I was very surprised. And happy. My whole body was shaking though. So I felt bad cause I really didn’t feel that nervous??? Is it possible as we get older we get less brave? So the end result, it was a lot better than I imagined. The dentist is a wonderful one and I will keep him for future visits. Glad that with each year they develop new and better ways to work on your teeth, makes it so much nicer for those of us that are chicken.
Now I can eat on both sides of my mouth with no more sensitivity! Wish I hadn’t waited so long. ;0)
