I've had a cavity drilled without novocaine once. It was...not enjoyable, but also not as awful as one would imagine. Basically, any time I grunted in pain they assumed that they had reached healthy tooth and started elsewhere.
I had an incisor that had a cavity and it was numbed, but not enough. Eventually he hit a sensitive spot and kept at it for the next few minutes. I put new indentations in his chair and took a long time to pay him.
Oh, and our little lady has developed a fever - it went up again at 1 a.m. , so guess who's going on 2 hours' sleep today.
