Customer Question

Is it acceptable practise for a dental practitioner to inject anaesthetic directly into the nerve of a tooth in an attempt at extraction? This happened to me a few years ago; I have not been able to face dental treatment since. Even thinking about the pain I suffered still makes me cry. I was not even aware that I could scream, let alone panic the other patients waiting outside. I know I need treatment, five years on, but I am too afraid to seek treatment.
