    I actually laughed my ass off at this. Because my dentist is hilarious and would totally do this just to make me laugh.

      As it happens, my dentist was serious.

      It wasn’t as drastic as it sounded and made perfect sense, but…

      Not what you want to hear. [grin]

        I research several jokes just before I visit my dentist, often printing out dental memes and comics to show him and his technician. We shoot the breeze first about our lives and families, get caught up to date, I ask him about his kite boarding, etc. We’re all laughing and joking when I finally sit down in the chair but we have to pause a lot while he works because he keeps crackin’ jokes and making me laugh.

        Laughter raises endorphin levels and decreases sensitivity to pain. The body’s musculature relaxes and blood flows better, bringing faster healing. The sympathetic nervous system unclenches and the brain stops jumping to negative thoughts and fears. Everything’s better.

        Never had laughing gas in my life, just a little Novocaine. Don’t need much when you know how to hack your mind.
