Did you know that novocaine is not as effective in the upper jaw as it is in the lower? That pretty much whatever you do upper molars will still be sensitive?

I didn’t but I do now. Four anaesthetics, enough coke to keep the Groucho Club happy on a slow afternoon, four times a nasty man with a huge needle advanced upon my defenceless gums.

Four fillings in upper molars.

What joy.

Still at least that’s all over for the next decade or so. 2016 booked in for the next visit.

I find that a bit unusual as I had very extensive root canal work on an upper molar and it didn't hurt a bit. Tickled a tad, maybe. What's more alarming is later when they say because the root has been removed you won't feel any pain so further work doesn't need any anathestic. I didn't fall for that...

For some unknown reason, I am insensitive to local anaesthetic on parts of my legs. I found this out when I had a mole excised and 11 stitches put in. Raw.

Smarts a bit....
