I got to be the first person to try out my dentist’s spiffy new pain-free novacaine syringe today.
Well, that alone doesn’t make me a geek. But the fact that this was cool enough to almost make up for the fact that I had to have my second filling in a week does.
See, the syringe vibrates, and apparently the fact that it vibrates causes one to feel less pain. I wouldn’t say I didn’t feel anything, quite; but I did feel way, way less, and what I did feel was less sharp. And we were done at the point I would have thought we were just getting started.
Sometimes, technology is pretty cool.
