    Is this what I have to look forward to? In two weeks I'm going to have an aching tooth pulled. Like the wuss that I am, I opted for the twilight stuff to put me mostly out. What's really pathetic is that one of my 12 year old students had two teeth pulled out this year to make room for his braces. All he had was Novocaine, so he was a lot braver than I am. Yeah, get that board ready 'cause here I come!

    Those are usually for very very badly behaved children, or special needs ones. We tend to go oral sedation/nitrous or even general sedation in an OR before a papoose board. In a professional setting, of course. I suspect trooper is thinking more of an at home hobby? Someplace like Northbound Leather in Toronto could probably make you a seriously sweet black leather one.

    No...
    and a dentist that would try to use one on me would be in for a bad surprise.
    (honestly, I'd switch dentist...)

    They are only used in a small few places now, as many people would consider this inhumane. The very few remaining places would only use them as a last resort, for the likes of special needs children to hold them still enough to allow the dentist or doctor to perform the procedure. Obviously they would try more common and accepted methods first.

    Its very unlikely that you'll come across anyone who has been placed in one of these.

    I'm game and prepared to take my chances, if you are on the lookout for a new dentist by all means give me a shout.


    Seriously: I suppose those restraint boards would still have a place in a specialist dentistry toolkit, but in my opinion - only where a patient would be perceived to be at risk from general anesthetic. Indiscriminate use on vulnerable members of society would be nothing more than an abuse of human rights. Other than that I'd suggest that their rightful place is the far famed Pleasure Torture Chamber in the tower of London.

    There's nothing painful about getting teeth surgically removed. I had three wisdom teeth removed at different parts in my mouth and literally had a saw sawing at them. I was awake the whole time and never felt a thing. Literally the most painful part was a light pinch when the first needle went in and after that I was sitting there relaxed. All I felt was a teeny tiny vibration around the area.

    I'd suggest just getting a local and not getting knocked out. You save money and you go home sooner.
