Novocain and doctor teaching a fear of pain

When Novocain first started being used by my dentist, he asked me if I wanted it. I didn’t know what it was and said yes. I wish I had asked him what it is because, of course, it knocked me numb which is a condition worse than pain.

I say bring it on! I hate tooth pain and the idea of having dental work without Novacaine makes me cringe.

The last time I went to the dentist I had a tooth extracted. He shot me up and I felt nothing, not even the needle he used for the Novacaine or whatever it was. When it wore off though… good thing he gave me a script of Vicodin.
