Re: Real quick, ds getting teeth pulled this morning
Okay, I don't know about teeth pulling, but my 8 year old had cavities at his last appointment. They used some gel that numbed his gums before giving him Novocain shots - and then they did the Novocain in such a way that he had no clue what so ever that he had a shot. None. During the drilling, cavity, etc, they kept him distracted enough that he was fine. And this is a kid that has quite a few sensory issues, ADHD, etc. I was dumbfounded, honestly. Can you call and talk to the dentist, or one of the hygenists? They should be able to set your mind at ease as to what they are going to use.
