I am not into AB stuff or baby things. However, I had dental work done and had my mouth numbed with Novocaine or something equally evil. I know from experience that I start biting on the inside of my mouth when that happens and then my mouth needs weeks to heal.
This time, when I left the dentist, I bought a pack of pacifiers and chewed on one of them instead. I had no problems with biting my numbed mouth parts. Has anyone else used pacifiers for this purpose?
