I am one of those silly people that have needle phobia, so any work gets done without one.
i ask first on a scale of one to ten how much will it hurt, if it's below Seven just get on with as quick as possible. I have had three back doubles capped once, he had to drill loads of the teeth away to fix the cap too, after that he always refers to me as the person that doesn't feel pain! Not quite true, but the thought of a needle, I'm out of the door.
i have only had one filling in the past twenty years, so thought I could take the pain of that one, he is an extremely good dentist though.
