I've had a filing today. Droopy mouth and numbness - including my ear - are recovering now. The injection for anaesthetic seemed to take 5 mins or more. Thought it would never end. He said the slower he does the injection the less painful it is.
My dentist is brilliant. Very gentle and kind. None of it hurt me at all.
He has replaced an old filing today. He's done a couple before. I only have one old grey/metallic filing left now. All my new ones are white and virtually invisible. (Yes I have a few. Terrible teeth).
But, the last few times I've had a filing and anaesthetic it has wiped me out! I came home shattered and with a headache. Paracetamol, ibuprofen and bed for me.
Anyone else get this?
