I was pleasantly surprised at the new technical innovations like the splash-guard sunglasses and the numbing agent that is so specific. I didn't feel any pain during the procedure. I liked that the dentist and the assistant each told me what to expect and the assistant rubbed my shoulder during the drilling which helped calm my nerves. After the numbness wore off, there was pain at the injection site, but after I took a Tylenol, the pain was gone by evening! This was way better than dentistry I've experienced in years passed.
