Dentist Appointment (11th January 2007)

Saw my dentist for a filling. He anaesthetised the area with an injection which knocked out the whole left side of my mouth. Very off feeling! When I drank, I could feel it in the right half of my mouth but not the left.

He advised not to eat anything until it wore off since you can end up eating parts of your mouth and tongue without realising. He predicted it would wear off from about 13:00 and he was right: by 13:30 my mouth was all mine again.

Dad had the appointment right after mine but his was only for a checkup. Which went fine.
