What's the worst part of having a cavity? (Assuming it's small and your whole tooth isn't rotting out.) It's the fat feeling face you have for hours after getting it filled.
That's why on Monday I didn't get a shot when I had my tooth filled. And guess what? It DIDN'T HURT. At all. It's a trick, that shot they give. I don't know what the hidden agenda is, but you don't need it.
Alright, you might need it if it's a big cavity, but if you're going for your regular dental checkups, you shouldn't have a big cavity.
I feel so brave. Be brave with me and forego the fat face.
