      Had a temporary cap put in and a tooth filled. Nitrous is a good thing for those who HATE going to the dentist. A little NOS, some good tunes, and no problem.... Still numb as hell!!

      Actually I'm one too.. And I do IT work in a few dentist offices. When I got my wisdoms taken out I asked if it'll hurt and the oral surgeon replies do you want it to hurt? :eek:

      When I had my wisdoms removed, all I remember is sitting in the chair, and then again sitting in the chair. The second time, I asked the surgeon when he was going to start. He told me he already finished. :eek:

      That's what happened with Char too. Only one thing... I was waiting for Char in the waiting room and she was the only patient in the back. After a few minutes I heard the most blood curdling screams I have EVER heard! Screams of absolute agony. I had images in my mind of the dentist with a foot on her chest, and a pair of pliers in her mouth yanking out her teeth:eek: I had to step out of the office into the hall, as I couldn't bear to sit their and listen. After a little while I went back in the office and the nurse said she was all done. I went back to see Char and she said "What are you doing here? When are they going to start?" Turns out that some people have a reaction to the anesthesia and they scream:rolleyes:

      Listened to a mix on Pandora. Can't tell you what I listened to except for the last song...



      Just what you want to hear when you're wasted on NOS:rolleyes:

      I ask for nitrous for any dental work these days. Can't beat it. Why sit there and suffer when you could be getting a good, legal buzz!!

      I remember I got NOS even before the injection to make me pass out when I got my wisdom teeth removed (I really hate needles so I asked for the NOS to start right away). It was really weird because I passed out to this really odd poking sensation (as opposed to stabbing, which I really when I get a normal injection). Apparently, they had to stab me like four times (eventually it was in the hand) because my veins like to hide.

      Experienced NOS for the first time on my last trip to the dentist. Had an infected molar I neglected(don't do this) - ended up getting a root canal and crown, plus while he was back there filled a cavity on the neighboring tooth.

      They have a nice little set up so you can watch TV(or attempt to) while the doc mutilates you :D Think the gas helped even more when the nurse handed me my bill, emergency dentistry isn't cheap :banghead:

      Will definitely request it again the next time I need any serious work done ;)
