Today, the dentist had to give me a lot of novacaine because my mouth wasn't becoming numb. After the 4th time the entire right side of my mouth was numb, except for the 2 teeth getting worked on. FML

That happened to me when I was getting stitches on my face from a dog bite, that felt terrible. Worse off, I went to the emergency room with a maxi pad against my face just to contain the bleeding.

happens to me all the time. my dentist actually told me she couldn't legally give me anymore novacane after she injected me 4 times.

That happens to me. They numbed the whole side of my mouth, but they were working on the only tooth I have with an EXTREMELY sensitive nerve, so it was the most painful five little minutes of my life.

Drug tolerance?

uhhh. that sucks. did you have a milkshake after? thats what i did, it felt all warm though on the numb side.

I was having crowns put on my two front teeth a couple years ago and after 11 shots, I couldn't feel my face, but I still managed to keep all feeling in mouth. What ever happened to the gas? I always used to get that when I was a kid. Now they just keep jabbing me with these useless needles!

This has also happened to me and it was as #3 said, the tooth was infected. The dentist stopped and I had to come in another time, but before I left he prescribed some pills to fight the infection. When I came the second time the anesthetist worked just fine

Fatigue can cause this, too. I was getting dental work done once and, when 2 shots didn't do the trick, the dentist knew a 3rd or 4th wouldn't work, so he told me to come back the next day. I did, and that time, one shot got the job done.

Oh no, that's awful! :O
