The Finnish dentistry experience was different. It was also faster and more matter of fact and I didn't experience any sense of shaming about having allowed myself to get cavities, which was always a feeling I got in America. Plus, she was understanding about the pain thing, and assured me I could have more anaesthetic if it was hurting. I got an extra shot of novocaine as soon as I squeaked! I have to go back in a month to get permanent fillings and possibly a more thorough exam, if these ones didn't fix the on-and-off toothache twinges I was getting. But I don't have to get a root canal or anything!

Yay Finland!

I did take a Xanax before I left, so that probably helped with everything. I am now sleepy as well as numb in the face.
