The dentist was drilling one of my teeth down to get it ready for a crown the other day. Two and a half hours – not all the time spent drilling, of course, but long enough. By the end, I was ready to fight my way out of the chair, if necessary. I’m a big baby when it comes to having my teeth drilled. I hate the noise of the drill. I flinch each time the dentist turns it on.
Of course, the dentist gave me a big old shot of Novocaine or something along those lines. I think it took a full minute for the injection, and after about ten minutes I couldn’t feel most of that side of my face. That’s the way I like it, though. Like I said, I’m a big baby when it comes to this. But the whole procedure, which included some time that the dentist had to go check on other patients, was, as I said, two and a half hours. After less than two hours I could feel that the Novocaine was starting to wear off substantially.
