Can I discuss options with my dentist?

It’s completely normal to want to attempt certain dental procedures without anesthesia and then go back to it if you’re too sensitive. For example, if you need a deep cleaning (scaling and root planing) you may want to just have the hygienist apply topical anesthetic. But if it’s too tender, you can have local anesthesia administered at any time. Or maybe you’re getting a small filling and want to avoid sedation, but you ask your dentist to keep the laughing gas on standby “just in case.”
