Just imagine all those drilling and water sounds at the dentist.
Studies have shown that people with red hair fear going to the dentist. Like I’m sure everyone doesn’t shake and shiver to the idea of having their teeth drilled or scraped. Redheads though, are resistant because it takes 20% more anesthesia to numb the pain away than other people and some dentists are not aware or hesitant to disperse more of the novocaine. Redheads are more sensitive to pain as well. Being a redhead I would agree with this. Until recently I had a difficult time twisting the arm of the dentist to be a little more generous with the medication. Years ago I was talking to someone, a non-redhead, and they told me they never felt any pain when the dentist was drilling. I could not believe it because I felt some discomfort every time. So I started asking for more and some dentists agreed and others did not. Most of their assistants thought I was a flake when I told them about redheads needing more novocaine.
