I observed with a dentist here in Penn who did NOT believe in using topical anesthetic prior to local anethetic injection. When he administered this to his patients, they would SCREAM so loud the waiting room could hear. It was like a scene out of a horror movie. I am not a squeamish person at all, but I have such a fear of hurting my patients with this injection. Do you think this is something I will get used to? All I think about are my patients screaming as the anesthetic forces it's way between palate and bone, separating them. I know the local anesthetic works really fast in this area, but can someone give me a better experience? Will I get used to this?
