Not that I need it, but I wish my dentist used nitrous oxide. At the very least the whole experience is at best annoying and generally unpleasant when fully conscious.

Just use a little lip balm or Chap stick on your lips.



Foresight and preparation?

Surely, you jest.

I had one of those old timers. Not until very recently have I ever found someone half as good as him.

Worst part of dentist is semi tacky latex tearing the corner of your mouth. If gloveless was an option I'd check it everytime



Our long-time dentist as kids was also a local show promoter. He brought in Tom Jones, 3 Dog Night, a couple others, as I recall. Fun hobby, huh? No gloves. Loved to make us chew the red tabs to check how good our brushing was. Also cut the muscle between our center top teeth and stitched it so we wouldn't be gap-toothed. None of my siblings had that done for their kids - must be hereditary, because all of us had, and all their kids have, that same gap.

Anyway. My pet dentist peeves arE

1 when they grab your cheek and shake it hard to get the novocaine going, and

2 when they say, does that tooth bother you? And you say no, not really, then they bang it hard with a steel tool to see if you scream.

I quit the dentist that did those to me. Jerk.

You cropped out where I said I quit that dentist.

I agree, it was battery.

That's a technique (must not be working for you)

Quote:

All nerve endings send potentially important information to your brain, but not all messages from nerve endings are given equal priority. Because the many different types of nerve endings all have to send their messages to the brain through shared nerve bundles it is sometimes possible for the amount of information being transmitted to exceed capacity—and some information gets left out. The nerve endings that transfer information about pressure and movement tend to get top priority, while the nerve endings that transfer information about pain have a lower priority. By “jamming the lines” with lots of information about pressure and movement (by squeezing and shaking the cheek) it is possible to reduce or eliminate the pain signals (from an injection) that the brain receives

I had that done. Either it doesn't work, or without it my front two teeth would be in different zip codes.

The dentist was wearing glasses and I watched the surgery in the reflection. I would never have guessed there was so much blood, since my face was too numb to feel it.

I don't know how many times I've brought this up but it's seriously ridiculous -- BATHROOM F***ING SINKS!!!!! What the hell is wrong with these damn casinos? Put in sinks that have a lot of water shooting out. So many places it takes quite a while to get your hands completely wet and then you add soap (the proper way, don't be a dry-hand soap-adding neanderthal), then scrub & rinse. Some places it's really quick because there's actually good high quality water pressure. But way too many places it takes way too damn long and it's super annoying AF.

If these casinos don't start fixing their sink problems due to my passive aggressive posts in this thread regarding the issue, then I'm going to start leaving yelp reviews...

Do you realize that not all of us kiss our dentist.

Casino employee's who touch me when
I'm playing. I almost jump out of my shoes
and am instantly furious. They love to come
up behind you and put their hand on your
shoulder. Quit doing that..
