    Have you ever tried to talk after you’ve had Novocain shot in your mouth followed by the insertion of a saliva suction tube?

    Just a gut feeling but I think she’s trying to tell you that it hasn’t, Doc.

    Aren’t you supposed to poke around a little first, just to test? My dentist always does before he brings out the jackhammer.

    amazingly tough on the outside and just as amazingly sensitive on the inside, teeth.

    As long as the Nitrous Oxide was turned up high enough, I didn’t want the dentist to use Novocaine.

    I had a drafty dentist during the war who would have me come in 2 hours early for pre-med. He was a believer in the whipped cream surgery, and I would leave with pocket full of pills. I wonder why the Navy threw him out.

    I believe all dentists over prescribe pain meds.

    When I was a kid I never took Novocaine just had the dentist drill without it. Hurt a little while drilling then the pain went away. The louder I screamed the more he drilled. Wanted root canal without it as well but dentist said had to have shot.

    I would say it didn’t.

    What happened to the color?
