    Fear Of The Dentist

    Oh my god...the pain!!! Just got back from a dentist,went there for a root canal...I never thought I'd experience such pain in my life...even with local anaesthesia on...Still got two more appointments,they say it wont pain that time,but I hardly believe the dentists.

    The only bright side was that it was a young female dentist who did the root canal and apologized every time she caused me pain!

    Does anyone of you here had the Dentist scare?

    No, I actually got hit in the mouth by a cricket ball in 5th grade! Wrecked a perfect set of teeth, but cancelled out any fear of dentists! The guy that hit me should have been playing thirds or so, but was a glory hunter! I was bowling by the way

    nope, not afraid of dentists in the slightest, which is good cause i have to go there every month. im probably not scared because i have to go every month, actually, because i never get hurt. i do, however, absolutely hate getting teeth extracted (ive had maybe 6-8 extracted), mainly cause i just hate the whole needle-being-stuck-in-your-mouth-thing, which is mainly cause i hate getting injections.

    Every month? Wow, tough call. You having some kinda orthodontic (sp?) work done?

    I'm not afraid of the dentists, but I have noted that about 99% of dentists over here are Aussies, Kiwis or Saffies! Must be the exchange rate, I guess.

    yep, its a long story that became a whole lot longer with my moving to china, meaning i was going between two different dentists.. right now i have a plate on the top and the bottom, and braces (but no wire) on the bottom. oh yeah, my teeth are completely f***ed up.. it comes from my dad's side-- someone in our family is over 60 and still has all her baby teeth

    i know what you are going through. At the moment i have three scheduled appointments with that freak. The next one will be the second at that is on friday the 13th. I cant take the injections and them getting on the bus dribbling all over the place. I feel your pain, but it has to be done

    In NZ, plenty of dentists leave university with $100,000 student loans, and they all tend to head overseas to get rid of as much of their loan as possible.

    I think being a dentist would be a pretty crappy job. Staring down people's throats all day, having to be absolutely precise in all that you do, and having to stand the sound of drills and the like all day. Though, I imagine that they'd get used to it, and you need to be a gun to be a dentist, so they'd probably enjoy it.
