SUCK-OLA.

maybe your dentist is cool with the novacaine b/c it's only one tooth? i had a root canal, three crowns, and a dozen fillings.

one thing, make absolutely sure that they cover your neck with the neck guard on the heavy apron if they need to do an x-ray!
Oh that had to suck that it wore off. I would have freaked out. No x-rays, my dentist wont do them while i am pg. my cavity is small and on the front of my tooth so they said no rush.
