Posted by: Momma_Izzy  (9 years ago)
I have a great fear of going to the dentist. I have been to 4 whom I have baffled. The first debtist coukd not get me numb to do a root canal, in the end went and got knocked out and got it pulled.

Same thing happened with second dentist. So there are 2yeet down the drain, literallly.

3rd dentis reakized my fear and teied vallium and concious sefation and also gas wich did absolutely nothing until i got home amd slept very well for a few hours. Had to be knocked out and jave 2 pulled.

4th dentist gave me xanax. 2 before bed and 2 an hour before appt. I didnt feel any different. He couldnt get me numb with shots. He said "i have 1 more thing up my sleeve please trust me. He inserted something in my gums and started working immediately, he said the effects would not last long so we had to go fast. I didnt feel a thing.
What was that called that he did? I was thanfull he got it done, but i still have ave abour 9 teeth to go.

Why can i not be numbes easily. Why does nothing to help with the anxiety work? I just want to be knocked out have all of them pullled and get dentures.

FYI: iam 31 yrs old and also have Multiple Sclerosis.

Never had a patient like you in 35 years. The injection you spoke of was intraligamental.

I can understand your frustration, but some teeth are better than no teeth. Getting them all extracted is a poor idea.
