When I was growing up, we lived in a fairly small town that only had a couple of dentists. Our dentist was on the older side, and he was deaf. Numbing the mouth was not much in use in those days, and our dentist didn't believe in doing it. At that time, dentists also used the old drills that were run drive belts. They didn't drill, they grinded. It was very, very painful, particularly for a kid. Anyway, having a deaf dentist meant that he couldn't hear you shout out for him to stop so you could catch your breath. I hated going to the dentist. When I was around 14 or so, he finally died, and we went to a new dentist who believed in all the more modern stuff, such as pain killers.
