The first half of class was lecture but after lunch we broke into groups of 3 and headed into the clinic to give 3 injections into the palate.
One into the 'Incisive Foramen' (suppose to be the most painful one) and one into each 'Greater Palatine' sites.
First practicing in a dummy mouth . It would beep if you injected into the correct spot.
We were all so nervous. I volunteered to get the shots first. I just wanted to get It over with and since we were using anesthetic without epi the numbness would only last around 45 minutes instead of several hours and I wanted to be back to normal before I got home.
Our third member was a friend of mine from hygiene school. I was so glad to see her and have her in our group of 3.
My turn! After taking the injection and watching i felt pretty comfortable. The dentist teaching gave us some pretty good tips on making it painless and i have to say it REALLY was!
