    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.
