Dr Ras re-attached a crown for me today. I was able to get a same day appointment, and the cost was very reasonable. The office is very clean and modern and Dr Ras is a very personable, friendly dentist.

Someone we know had a root canal done when we were there last month. He went to a lady who had an office near the hospital. I'm guessing that this is the same person. They have also had crowns done and saved a lot of money. My only concern about using her is that they told me that she usually doesn't use novacaine. Have you found that to be true?

Dr Ras is located near the roundabout/texaco station/setar headquarters. about 2 miles from hospital.

she uses the usual nerve block or infiltration local anestheia that we are all used to, for pain management.

actually, she does not use novocaine....it is another type of local.
novocaine has not been widely used now for years here in the usa. it is something similar, but not novocaine.

how does one deal with pain of drilling without a local?

Thanks, I wasn't aware of that. I know that they give me a shot of something. Whoever this dentist is, she tells them to try it without numbing the area. There's no way that I would do that.

i have a better chance of getting into heaven than having dental work without being numb!
