Joining this thread a tad late.
However, about four years ago I had an extraction of a upper left pre-molar. Speaking as someone who was never particularly nervous of dentists, I can only describe the experience as sheer butchery and ever since I have suffered from neuralgia, due to associated nerve damage.
No consolation to me, but shortly after the dentist was admitted to a psychiatric hospital where he committed suicide.
I'm pleased to say that I'm now with a young lady dentist who I trust implicitly.....unfortunately during a recent visit, she tells me she's pregnant and will soon be taking maternity leave.
