If they have to drill just get the max Novocaine shot first. They use a small needle for that and usually rub on some stuff that dulls the injection anyways. After that you shouldn't feel anything.
I've had plenty of dental work done, and always ask for the maximum deadening. For some reason my body chemistry processes the deadening effects pretty fast, so I've learned to ask for the maximum. Otherwise I'll be wiggling in the chair!
Hope your Messican dentists are as qualified as those in the States!

Best of luck MrE! Just remember there are a few of us out there that lidocaine, xylocaine(Novocaine) just doesn't work on. There's always gas too if you really get anxious. Music can be a big help. They let my daughter wear headphones when she goes in.
All my best bro! Jim

Aargh! I share your dread....yes, maximum pain meds before you go in and maximum after you get out. Think good thoughts!
We'll send the good vibes your way.

Best of luck, throwing good mojo down south. Hope it doesn't affect your pucker when you're blowing the horn.
Sometimes I wake up grumpy. Other times I let her sleep. .

For many years my dentist was an elderly German woman who didn't use a needle unless you really needed it. As she explained it to me, if the dentist is skilled you shouldn't need it for ordinary fillings and the like. The pain killer is for the dentist's benefit so they can work harder and faster.
I had many procedures with her over 10 or more years and the convenience of not having a numb face, and knowing that it wouldn't hurt later was a real plus.
I haven't had a regular dentist since that I would trust in this way however.
Good luck to you Mr E.

Don't like to go to the dentist or car mechanics. It's going to be expensive and hard to get one you trust some times.

Thanks for your vibes, guys! I always get a little ookie with dental work, especially when it's right where I play.
It turns out I need a double root canal. Two teeth are giving me trouble in the bottom front and have formed an abscess.
Yesterday was painless, just some x-rays. The fun starts on Wednesday. The dentist assured me I wont feel a thing. Once I get the needle, it's smooth sailing from there.
I know all that at an intellectual level. I'm still not likin' it, though.
