Probably when I had a tooth removed but the local anaesthetic didn't work (due to my genetic condition which we weren't aware of at the time). So I felt everything and it was mentally scarring, lol. I don't like dentists now.

Never had a bad one tbh


But if the orthodontist counts then getting my braces on was the worst - just because they hurt lmao. Nothing bad happened

Having impressions made for a retainer. Never tasted something so awful in my life and could barely breathe. I had to be gassed to be more compliant. I think I was... 10?

Then let ME tell you!

On summer 2017, I told my dentist that my tooth is sensitive sometimes. She filled it. It got even worse. I got sensitive to cold water.

On autumn 2018, my tooth started aching and there was a bad bad pain. The dentist was changed in my GP. This new one told me that they would fill it again. They couldn’t make me numb so they said ROOT CANAL! I went there a thousand times but she couldn’t make my tooth numb. So she said “Look, the first step of root canal is the hardest part. I refer you to a specialist for it.”

The specialist was far far away from me so took me 2-3 hours to go to him from my college and when I arrived, they said the appointment has been cancelled. We called you but you didn’t pick up.... anyways... I waited for another a few months to my next appointment...

The specialist put my on half asleep and did his job in 15 mins (it normally takes 45 min to an hour!) he was great.

I went back to my dentist for the second part. She did it for two, three times and then she couldn’t fill one of my nerves. And each time she was like, I’m doing you a favour to do it for you again! I asked her why it doesn’t work and she seriously told me, “I don’t know. Maybe that’s because I’m not feeling good these days!!!!”

I met another dentist and he told me to come back in 3 months when he has his equipments.... I’m still waiting...

It’s been a year that I’ve been struggling with these dentists for the same issue :/

There was a new dentist (my old one had left) I saw only once. She had a very shirty attitude. When checking my gums she used this metal tool she claimed 'wasn't sharp'. It felt quite the opposite. She was stabbing the inside of my mouth with it and it really hurt. I told her this but she insisted otherwise. She continued to jab and after a big one my arm flung out and hit her in the face :erm:

It was a reflex action. I didn't think to hit her, it honestly just happened not in my control. She didn't take it well and exclaimed "right, she shan't carry on with that then!" and stormed out of the room on her way out she said I was a "nervous patient" to the dental nurse and let her take over.

The dental nurse carried on and was lovely. Didn't hurt one bit

This dentist left before I was due back again, so I never saw her again (quite glad).

That was just some years ago when the dentist told me my wisdom teeth in the flesh has to be pulled. 😣

The appointment at the ortodontist a week after was a torture, the days at home not really better.

One that kept telling me I had so and so wrong, and advertising his private treatments to rinse me out of my money.

More embarrassing than anything but I'd just had a filling and my mouth was numb after the injection they have me. After the dentist was done, he told me to take a swig of mouthwash but because my mouth was so numb, I didn't know if it was in my mouth and ended up dribbling all over my shirt and lap :lol:

I had to do the walk of shame out of there with a huge stain on my shirt and pants. Kinda looked like I wet myself

I understand you. My wisdom teeth were an awkward procedure and this lasted long minutes before it began and ended.

I had similar to this.

Was about 8/9, needed a tooth out. Dentist gave me the injection, waited a little while, then got started. I was still feeling it. He gave it another minute, gave me a little more anaesthetic, tried again... Same...

8 injections of adult doses later I was just going numb, and despite trying to get halfway through the extraction, wouldn't believe I had been feeling everything.

Now I have to make a point of telling dentists to use the more expensive type, or it won't work.

My primary school dentist for a filling. I was apparently so traumatised that I wrote about it in my diary (7-year-old Jamie was a real drama queen).

She didn't believe me she just carried on and got it done, lol. She told me that it was impossible, and I was like my face says otherwise but okay, lady. That's crazy though, I hope they listen to you now?

I have to go and see specialists now, aside from check ups, but that's because dental troubles are common with my condition (which makes it even more annoying that local anaesthetic doesn't work). So they know what they're doing, which I am thankful for. Wish that dentist all those years ago would've been more understanding!

When my tooth was cracked so it was in at least 4 pieces, had to extract each piece individually, and the anesthetic stuff doesn't work on me well I need at least twice the normal amount for even a small numbness, so I felt it all pretty much and I had a very deep root on that tooth, and it was done in a NHS van as it was emergency as it was so painful (I was 10 I think), screamed a decent amount, passers by in the car park I had it done would probaly a bit disturbed, and afterwards when I stood up my face was pretty bloody, it was fun!

Also interestingly I'm 18 and still have a lot of my baby teeth
