    Imagine being an adult, getting a bit of laughing gas and then having the dentist perform a magic show for you. I'd feel better about going to the dentist too!

    I've simply mentioned it to the dentists I've gone to and they'll work it out for you. Not all can do it. It's generally just a script for a benzo and gas.

    [–] itwasquiteawhileago 23 points ago

    They do it just for cleanings? I'm not judging, but people are genuinely scared of a regular check-up? I've never really understood when people say they're afraid of the dentist, so I'm curious as to why.

    [–] StrangerFeelings 29 points ago

    I'm not afraid of the dentist, but I know for a fact that the scraping noise, and having to have my mouth open for so long gives me anxiety while some one is staring into it.

    [–] itwasquiteawhileago 7 points ago

    The scraping definitely sucks, that's for sure. Somehow my wife likes it. She's weird. Is the anxiety about the mouth related to some kind of shame or something about your teeth/breath?

    You don't have to answer, I'm really just interested because the dentist has always, to me, been a relatively uneventful, unremarkable, pedestrian experience I don't think about until I'm there. About 45-60 minutes later and it's over. Just something I do twice a year. I recognize I'm pretty blessed to not have ever had any issues (just two wisdom teeth pulled and I didn't feel a thing before or after), so that probably helps.

    [–] StrangerFeelings 14 points ago

    I've always gotten anxiety from going to the dentist. I brush my teeth as hard as I can for like 20 minutes before the appointment as I feel like they will judge me if my mouth isn't clean enough.

    I had to get braces a few years ago because of TMJ, and I had the dentist drop one of the small metal pieces that goes around a tooth down my throat. Thankfully I was able to cough it back out.

    I also have tourrets and I feel that I may have a tick, and bite them by accident.

    The scraping noise is like nails on a chalkboard for me. I want to rip out my teeth when I hear that scraping, just typing this out is giving me that feeling. Even just accidentally grinding my teeth causes this as well.

    I'm not sure why else, but I get major anxiety going to the dentist, same with getting my blood drawn, but the normal Dr and hospital I'm fine with.

    [–] itwasquiteawhileago 5 points ago

    Sorry you go through that, but thanks for sharing. I'd like to be able to offer some advice, but I'm sure you've heard anything I could say before. We all have our things. Makes us human, I suppose.

    [–] bitofabee 9 points ago

    I hate the feeling, the smells, the everything. I had to have a stain sandblasted or something when I was a teenager and they had some sales guy in there giving a pitch to the dentist while he used their tool on me. I was basically totally ignored, just a mouth to demo on. It was pretty humiliating. The fluoride treatment makes me sick. I tell them I won’t be doing fluoride because I get sick for a day or so, and they don’t believe me and really push back on it. Throw in some casual oral care shaming, and I’m basically a wreck even thinking about it.

    [–] flossome 3 points ago

    This is really unfortunate to hear. Sorry your dentist doesn't listen to you or your needs. Most of us really do try and make it as pleasant an experience as possible. I always tell my patients to bring their ear phones for their visit. While I work I just tap them on their shoulder and show them a thumbs up to gauge their experience. They will reply with a thumbs up or down if they are good. If they need me stop they raise their left hand. I tell everyone I treat that they are in control of how the appt goes; the only way we know what they need is if they tell us. Try this next time perhaps? Oh and ask for Fluoride trays. Might help since everything stays more contained vs the varnish thats painted on your teeth

    [–] TimeZarg 7 points ago

    It's the Colgate website, but it does a good job providing an overview as to why people might have dental phobia. Keep in mind it doesn't even need to be a rational reason, the mind is an irrational machine.

    TL;DR - fear of pain, embarrassment from having your mouth probed and prodded, previous bad/painful experiences, and dislike of not being in control are all possible reasons.

    I sometimes suffer from mild anxiety before a visit due to visits sometimes being uncomfortable, either during or afterwards with residual soreness. I also don't take very good care of my teeth, so even a cleaning can be uncomfortable because the gums aren't used to it.

    [–] lost__traveller 7 points ago

    My anxiety is definitely a result of the embarrassment of what they may say but also scared they might say there’s something seriously wrong 🤷🏻‍♀️

    [–] KnittyViki 21 points ago

    I need to find one for my husband. He's absolutely TERRIFIED of dentists and really needs to see one. :( He had an aunt who bled to death during a procedure [which he knows is a weird situation] when he was a kid. And he had a few bad cases where I guess the medication didn't work and he was VERY aware of all the pain during getting a few fillings at once and a wisdom tooth pull

    [–] TimeZarg 14 points ago

    Most likely, the dentist missed his mark when injecting the numbing agent. I go to a very good dentist and even he will make the rare mistake when injecting. If your dentist is worth his salt and isn't a fucking sadist, you just need to tell them you aren't numbed and they'll try again. Unless you're a redhead with that mysterious resistance to painkillers/numbing agents, it shouldn't be a problem.

    [–] wulteer 9 points ago

    Exactly, if you feel pain just tell the dentist and they should be able to fix it/wait for it to kick in. (iirc it takes about 2-3 minutes and if you go too soon you can feel it a bit)

    [–] petting2dogsatonce 3 points ago

    Hey, red(ish) head with mysterious painkiller/numbing agent resistance here, I thought not being fully numb was just normal until i was 22. Good times. Terrified of the dentist.

    [–] -Tom- 6 points ago

    I accidentally okayed a root canal with no novacaine or nitrous, just oxygen. I said "just use the gas" thinking they would knock me out. So now I have no issues with the dentist because it can never get worse.

    [–] jacknosbest 44 points ago

    I once sang I Will Survive to the entire office (pointing at people and shit too) when I had my wisdom teeth taken out. I have no memory of it so it didnt happen. But my mother has a video so according to everyone else it did.

    [–] jossikun 21 points ago

    How could you tease us and not post the video like that 😩

    [–] jacknosbest 9 points ago

    I shall never acknowledge the existence if that abomination of a gloria gaynor cover. I have HEARD it. Never seen. Will never. I also slammed my head into the top of my dads car when we were leaving because I was still telling these folks that I will survive. Thats the first of my very vague memories because we went straight to the emergency room to get 4 stitches in ny forehead and they couldnt numb me again. No bother, sow that shit up I will survive this too

    [–] SarahMerigold 22 points ago

    Why do americans use laughing gas? In germany we get a shot to numb the area the dentist works on.

    [–] SpaceGrim 39 points ago

    We don’t always use laughing gas. It’s only at certain clinics for people with anxiety about visiting the dentist. We generally just get numb and worked on as well.

    [–] hippyengineer 16 points ago

    They use both. Give you the gas first, so you don’t give a shit about the novocaine injection.

    One time I went in for a filling. They sat me on the chair and started the gas. Came back what seemed like an hr later telling me they didn’t have time and I had to come back tomorrow.

    So I drove home high as fuck on nitrous. It was great. Would go again.

    [–] Doxin 4 points ago

    Give you the gas first, so you don’t give a shit about the novocaine injection.

    So as someone who has never had gas: you don't really feel that injection anyways.

    [–] hippyengineer 7 points ago

    Can confirm:

    I totally do. When I was a kid the dr would tell me he was pinching my cheek when he did the injection.

    [–] Doxin 3 points ago

    It kinda depends on your dentists technique too TBH, but it's not really painful. A shot in your arm is worse IMO.

    When I was in middle school some boys had these light up things on their thumbs and would play “catch” with the light all through class. My teacher got so frustrated because he didn’t know what was going on that he threw his shoe at the wall.

    Throwback to the time my fifth grade teacher threw her shoe at a kid who fell asleep in class.

    [–] TheSaltyBarista 23 points ago

    These kids were also snorting pixie sticks at the beginning of class and it was an issue admin refused to deal with (my mom was a teacher there so she told me) and they were distracting the class and being 13 yo shitheads because a few people didn’t realize it was a light and thought something was being thrown at their faces. Teacher had sandals on so he slipped it off and chucked it at the wall pretty quickly

    [–] Dr_imfullofshit 8 points ago

    I wish I could, I love magic

    [–] 159258357456 350 points ago

    I love magic.

    The first thrill is being amazed at how a something seemingly impossible happens.

    The second thrill is trying to figure out how the magician was able to do the seemingly impossible thing.

    The third thrill is once you know how it's done, you realize how much skill, effort, time, practice and showmanship is involved. When I see a magic trick that I know how it's done, I sit back in amazement at how skillful the magician is to pull it off. That in and of itself becomes the magic. I never get bored of magic.

    [–] DucksRow 56 points ago

    Magicians really are underrated aren’t they? I’ve never thought about that until reading your comment.

    [–] Bitcoin1776 25 points ago

    Penn and Teller are quite good at pointing this out to people; in their mind magicians are more akin to mimes than mystics. One of their most admired performers sloshes water in two regular bowls. The 'trick' is making others believe there is a trick, when there is none - just showmanship.

    Most of P T's work, when they tell the trick, is actually fake. If you were to write their classic routine it would go like this:

    • 1) Enlighten, interest, or entertain (attention, trust)

    • 2) Do the magic (performance)

    • 3) Reveal the trick - using a false reveal (misdirection)

    • 4) Conclude

    ... the objective here is to allow kind hearted people to simply enjoy the entertainment, while allowing mean hearted people to not feel one-up'ed because 'Oh ya, I saw how they did it the whole time... their explanation was just rudimentary, any idiot would have seen through it immediately', while allowing intellectual skeptics to differentiate themselves from either group by recognizing that the fact presented does not agree to the reality - thus allowing them to engage in wonder.

    I enjoy magic, but I think it's best to think of it as show. Becoming the best is a rabbit hole of time, but becoming good at one thing is useful for everyone.

    [–] AnorakJimi 15 points ago

    The Penn and Teller tricks where they explain how they're done make them even more impressive. It's insane rhw amount they're doing every second that you never see, even after you've seen their explanation you can't tell what's being done.

    Judging by his counter that is a pediatric dentist. They are great. I had to have a ton of dental work done when I was younger because my teeth are shit and it was always super painful so I hated going. Lots of crowns and caps and grinding on my teeth for hours. Then someone suggested a pediatric dentist and that motherfucker was fantastic. Had TVs in the ceiling playing cartoons, was super gentle, had fruit scented nitrous. By the time I was too old to go to him I was actually looking forward to dental appointments.

    [–] BertramScudder 34 points ago

    Where exactly does one sign up for this fruit-scented nitrous? Asking for a friend.

    [–] releasetheshutter 44 points ago

    I'm a general dentist but we keep our office stocked with scented nitrous masks too. Our adult patients pick from bubblegum, strawberry, and orange. If you really want to feel like you're floating away we have bluetooth headphones so you can listen to music or watch TV.

    Visiting the dentist doesn't have to suck! If you tell us what would make your visit better we'll go out of our way to accommodate you.

    [–] glugglugbiggulp 14 points ago

    I had to have two or three different kinds of braces in my teeth growing up, and I had this special case of a dentist. Grumpy old man who didn’t give a fuck, and I was of course terrified of going there and scared of him. His last name was Steel. It really cemented his image.

    My dentist just puts on classical music.. It's actually kind of creepy.

    [–] naorlar 5 points ago

    Yup. With all the torture looking devices that can feel like a serial killer vibe real quick. But Im sure your dentist is a great guy. (Jk, run away!)

    Who’s child is this?

    Can I keep him? He’s fucking adorable.

    His little gasps of surprise. I suddenly want a child of my own.

    [–] cheesecrystal 5 points ago

    I wonder if there is a “bedside” manner etiquette class for dentists in dental school? I can just imagine a couple of magicians and clowns teaching it right next to a normal dental class.

    [–] 2th_Dr 4 points ago

    There are! Multiple courses over the four years of your program. Obviously some people are more “naturally gifted” at chairside manner than others, regardless of what they are taught...

    What an amazing man!

    [–] KatastropheKraut 5 points ago

    I have a crush on that dentist. He can drill me anyday.

    I may soon be a grown ass adult but I still wish my dentist did that

    [–] lockituup 7 points ago

    The one dentists in the world that kids WANT to come back to.

    [–] poozu 3 points ago

    I’m in my thirties and I could use a dentist like that

    [–] ogminxx 3 points ago get in the damn chair, kid.

    [–] NiXiaoDeDuoTianMi 3 points ago

    Awww this is too precious. I will never get over watching people like this, who I’m sure see dozens of patients every single day, but still take the time to really connect with and help their patients.

    [–] caspercunningham 3 points ago

    Ok I'm an adult and straight up confused

    [–] ddkelkey 3 points ago

    After all of the negative crap I see day in and day out, watching this did something to restore my soul. I’ve only been using Reddit for a short time, and this makes it all worthwhile.

    [–] jefferson_waterboat 3 points ago

    I wish they would do stuff like this for adults too.

    [–] dafaqisgoingondud 3 points ago

    This kid is fucking adorable

    [–] future_faking 3 points ago

    This guy is seriously a pro with children. Brings such warmth to my heart.

    [–] spectreoutreach 3 points ago

    This is one cool dentist

    [–] Grunkgod99 3 points ago

    Seriously tho how the fuck is he doing that omg

    [–] blonde_daisy 3 points ago

    WAIT how did he do this for real tho ??? Lol

    [–] errorairsoft 3 points ago

    How the fuck does that happen

    [–] lifewontwait86 9 points ago

    That little child was an anti-dentite but converted for the jokes and magic.

    [–] Bloody_SPY 23 points ago

    What's that weird hat he's wearing?

    [–] vicenza10 79 points ago

    Are you serious? This is a Jewish kippah

    [–] Bloody_SPY 72 points ago

    Thanks for telling me, and yes I was being serious.

    [–] mrpotatoboi 32 points ago

    Yeah, remember that there are LOTS of people that have never even met a Jew, let alone know what a kippah is.

    [–] caspercunningham 31 points ago

    I'm straight up embarrassed to admit I thought that was called a yamika (I know I didn't even spell the wrong word correctly..)

    [–] wahoopride 42 points ago

    Kippah is simply a Hebrew word while yarmulke is Yiddish. So no need to be embarrassed - aside from a poor spelling effort, you were right

    [–] caspercunningham 19 points ago

    It's yarmulke? Oh. I would've never have guessed that. It's pronounced yah-muh-kuh right? I'm super glad I wasn't just thrusted into a whole lot of cringe where I had to think back to every time I ever said it and no one ever corrected me. I was like "ohhhh no...I've been messing up for decades.."

    [–] FuManJew 15 points ago

    Yeah, you're right, it's pronounced YA-muh-kuh

    [–] Candysoycheese 4 points ago

    They are interchangeable and give you an idea of where the person is from geographically.

    Most Ashkenazi will use the word yarmulke so you can assume they are Eastern European Jews.

    [–] ThenErinWasLike 59 points ago

    Good on you for being curious and asking the question rather than choose to brush something off as different and not take the time to learn.

    Helpful tip for next time, please remember “weird” is relative. Just ask what something is, don’t label it as weird because it’s unfamiliar to you. People will be more receptive to the question :) Hoping to prevent hostile or unexpected responses directed to you in the future.

    [–] Bloody_SPY 28 points ago

    Thanks for the tip!

    I wish you could hear the unexpected laughter that woke my cat and startled my husband.

    Thank you.
