be a dentist
freaking beaker out
I went to the dentist today and I have a cavity.  I'm mildly freaked out by that, mostly because it's the first cavity I've ever had (and yes I realize that any sympathy I might have gotten from some of you just went away).  So I get to go in next week for a filling which I am not so much excited about.  Ah well...

Cavities suck.

One thing to watch for, is to make sure that your mouth is frozen before they start to drill. My nerves are high/ in a slightly different spot then they expected, so they always had to poke me a couple of times to get my mouth frozen.

I'm not sure if they can see nerves on the X-ray or not. You should ask.

Thanks for the advice - they had to double numb me to take out my wisdom teeth which I should bring up.

I don't know if they can see the nerves on x-rays or not, but she expressed some concern that while the cavity is very small on the surface from the x-ray it looks like it may run narrow and deep. I'm hoping she's wrong and this will be quick.
