Don't ask me to talk

Why does dental anaesthetic make the affected area feel massively swollen?  Why not smaller; why any perceived change in size at all?

Yes, I've had a filling. It was supposed to be a minor repair to an existing filling, but by the time the old one had been removed and underlying decay excised & sterilised, my dentist was using tools I'd never seen before – I'm sure one was to prevent the drill destroying the entire external tooth. Before returning to the office, I've had to thoroughly wash bone, amalgam and saliva out of my beard, but I didn't feel a thing.

Then again, I can't feel my nose, either.

Comments

you had a nose filling?

careful brushing and flossing of your nose will help prevent this in future.
