Can you help me find more information about my transcendental experience while on laughing gas at the dentist?

Can you help me find more information about my transcendental experience while on laughing gas at the dentist? I recently had Nitrous oxide while at the dentist, and the side effects were deep insights into my life, and a crystal clear understanding of problems that were before vague. I'd like more information about this phenomenon and I'd like to hear others' experience with this gas.

Dentist visit from hell

I'm highly upset. Against my initial instincts, I allowed a dentist to put three fillings in my mouth last Monday. Almost a week later, my mouth is STILL hurting. I've been told by others this is not normal. Beyond that, I found out after the fillings were put in place, they were amalgam. I had assumed they would be composite since my other filling was composite (put in by another dentist years ago). I need advice. [more inside]

Looking for a gentle, compassionate dentist in Pittsburgh

Please help me find a kind, patient, gentle dentist in the South Hills of Pittsburgh (Mt.Lebanon/Dormont/Brookline area preferred but not required). I don't have anyone who can give me a personal referral, and I suffer from a lot of fear and anxiety w/r/t dental work, so it's been a while since I've had any. If I could find one who still uses nitrous oxide it'd be even better. Many thanks in advance!

I dont know the drill

My dentist put a temp crown on a broken tooth today, then sent me to the front desk to set a followup. I was expecting this to be covered, at least partly, by my insurance, but they told me I had reached the limit and asked for $600. Is this right? Should they have told me I'd be paying out of pocket before starting treatment? [more inside]

These mythical awesome dentist -- where do I find one?

How do you find a dentist who is good with very anxious patients? Is it appropriate to ask, when making the appointment, if he’s willing to prescribe a sedative and/or use gas? I hear (often on askme) that people have marvelous, caring dentists who are willing to do whatever is necessary to make them comfortable, but where do you find one? I’ve got this list of dentists covered by my insurance, I need one that can fill my cavities without leaving me in hysterics, and I don’t know how to go about discovering who that will be.

Pre-op antibiotics, yay or nay?

I'm getting all four of my impacted wisdom teeth out tomorrow. In a study done in 2007, one dose of pre-op antibiotics has been shown to lower infection rates by 50%, and might do more good than several days of antibiotics post-op. My oral surgeon's office apparently does not follow that practice. Is there any danger in me taking one of the doses of amoxicillin that has already been prescribed for this procedure the night before? [more inside]
