Mine were deep. We use, at my office, this machine called air abrasion and we use it when the cavities aren't deep. Mine were, thanks to parents that never ttok me to the dentist when I was little. I also have to get my wisdoms out soon too
And the crawling feeling is HORRIBLE! My lip is starting to do that and my chin is itching...UGH!
I kept trying to talk to my co-worker after the doctor made me numb and I kep biting my tongue. She said don't do that....it won't hurt now but it will later and it does
And when the doc adjusted my bite, he asked how it felt and I said "Well it feels high but I could be biting my tongue" and he said "Yep. You are."
