I have a cavity in my front right tooth. The left had a root canal. Will I need novocaine to fill and if so will is sting? I'm a huge dental phobic.

I have a cavity in my front right tooth. The left had a root canal. Will I need novocaine to fill and if so will is sting? I'm a huge dental phobic.

Fillings and numbing: Any filling done on a vital tooth will hurt if no anesthetic is used. A large cavity that you can see means the dentist will have to do some drilling. Ask your dentist to use a topical numbing gel prior to using the needle. It will sting somewhat. Suggest you bring your ipod and headphones to the appt. Crank up the volume to take your mind off the actual injection and the drill noise. Good luck. ...Read more

Painful swollen cheeks persists 3 days after Novocain (procaine) for 2 dental fillings. Never had this before. Should I be concerned? Dentist said its normal.

No worries: No worries. If the treatment was extensive or there was a need for multiple injections this is common and this will go away. Take some Ibuprofen (600-800mg) every 6 hrs for 24hrs and tread lightly on the area.
