Does Getting a Cavity Filled Hurt?
What Is The Process to Getting a Cavity Filled? Do They Numb your Gum Then Give You A Shot Then Fill It? How Is It Done? Most Importantly Does it Hurt?!

Yep - the shots hurt, but only for a second.

But ... NOT getting it filled will hurt a lot worse when you have to have a root canal!!!


Maria
It hurts to numb it, that's the worst part. When they drill it, it can be a bit sensational, not really.
It's not much to put it bluntly.

The dentist gives you a shot in the gum to numb the tooth and surrounding areas. He then drills out the decayed part of the tooth and puts a filling over the tooth. It really doesn't hurt. Your tooth may be more sensitive to heat or cold however


picman193
Depending on your pain threshold you can get an injection or a topical ointment that numbs the area. You will feel pressure during the procedure but minimal to no pain. Good luck and I hope everything turns out OK.


bostonchick
Yes, they numb it, and you don't feel a thing.


Panacea
Go see a dentist that does laser dentistry. Absolutely painless.

You got it! They numb your gums, then give you the novocain and then go to work! It doesnt hurt at all.

Your dentist may use an air abrasion technique in which case there are no shots and you still dont feel anything!

Either way, you'll be fine! No worries!

(There was someone who said they wish they could be put under anesthesia for dental work. Well, you absolutely can! You have to pay an anesthesiologist, but it's worth it if that's what you want!)

(And just FYI: root canals dont hurt either)


berniee2000
It won't really hurt. It depends on how deep the cavity is, whether they will have to numb it or not. I had a small cavity and no numbing was necessary. Some dentists will use some kind of gas to make you more relaxed and won't need to give you a shot of Novocaine. Most fillings are now a plastic type compound. Best to avoid the metallic fillings...they're now finding some of them are causing problems


polkahaunis
i dont get novacane shots when i get teeth filled never did since i was a kid iam so afrade of the needles its a releif the needles hurt more then the fillings its not my favorate thing to do but i go twice a year and have fillings and cleanings and never get shots

the shot can, but the filling doesn't hurt. they usually numb where they will give the shot, give you the shot, let it kick in, they drill the cavity out then fill it. it's not that bad.


I-o-d-tiger
Little stick for a numbing shot then it won't hurt after that. If it starts to hurt they can give you another shot, which you probably won't feel at all. Pressure should be the only thing you feel.

(Had my share Of cavities filled)
good luck!


Another Perspective
The shot to numb is the most painful part. I guess without the shot it would hurt much more. I wish they could put you under for any dental work. I hate it.

the dentist will smear some Topical Anesthetic on the jab-site to numb it a little, then give u a shot of local anesthetic. it won't hurt after this, you'll just feel coolness (due to all the water!) and lotsa vibrations.

the dentist will then drill out the cavity and ensure that there's no more idecayed parts left, then dry the area totally. then he'll fill it with metal (amalgam) or composite (white/tooth-colored) filling, and wait for it to set!

no worries, just sit back and relax! isnt paintful. if it is, raise yr hand to tell yr dentist and he'll give u some extra anesthetic.


CP
It's a painless process actually. Typically the dentist will numb the area with a topical, and then inject novicaine the further numb the area of the mouth where the work will be done. You shouldn't feel a thing! You will be numb for several hours following the filling, and you shouldn't feel any pain once the numbness has worn off.


Joe P
not at all


Marilyn F
no, you will be given a medication to deaden the nerves of the tooth.


lulucakes32
you'll be fine, they'll probably numb your mouth


Shoshana S
It really doesn't hurt. I remember having mine done and I was so scared! You will feel a teeny tiny pinch when they put a very very thin needle in your gum, that has the medication in it that will numb the area right away. From there there you will not feel a thing as they fill it. I promise you will be ok! I understand your fear and I'm telling you that when it's over you'll see I was right- no real pain!
