    aww unlucky LPK


    the needle may hurt a bit the first time, but then your mouth will go numb and you will feel nothing else. You'll be fine! the filling doesn't hurt once it's in! it will feel weird, but not hurt.

    yea but LPK is young, it's unlikely the drill will hurt because he will most likely have stronger teeth.... didn't hurt me (top row, last tooth) first time round...

    should be fine if it's on the back... and I didn't mean PAIN as such, more just a cold sensation, which my tooth was very sensitive to - you'll be fine!

    the needle will hurt and when you have to wait for it to numb it will be really werid and annoying cos you'll wanna feel it. and then you might feel some stuff when they do the filling, but the sound will be the thing that scares you

    No, shouldnt hurt, the stuff they put in your teeth (mouthem?) smells a bit like cinnamon which is great nice, but scary. When it's done you also feel that one side of your mouth is bigger than the other and is very annoying.

    The great thing about having things done to your mouth is that you can't see what the hell is going on. This is good because it means you don't have a clue when to expect anything, and so it's over quicker than you think.

    Also, having part of your mouth numbed allows you to experience the strange sensation of snogging yourself - it really does feel like someone else's mouth!

    I've never had a filling done where I needed an injection, so I don't know about the needle. My last filling hurt a little, but in a dull ache kind of way, rather than total out and out pain. The again, my dentist didn't user any type of painkillers for me at all, as he said I didn't need them as the drill was that small. Pfff, what does he know?

    My dentist warned me not to even gentally bite the inside of my cheek when I had mine done as some people don't realise that they are biting too hard and into their flesh :eek: !

    the answer to all your questions is: nei...
    first they put on some orange paste to numb your gums, then they numb your gums even more with an injection. they numbed em with paste earlier so you'll barely notice. then they pull out your teeth/screw them on/apply fillings/deapply fillings/etc...
    and then your mouth feels bent halfway up your cheek because of the numbness...
