It's really not possible for anyone to formulate any type of substantive reply in the comments section of a website.

In passing, we will point out that you don't actually use the word pain in describing what you felt. (Elsewhere on this page we describe how different types of nerve fibers are affected differently by local anesthetics).

You also mention that anxiety control was the issue that kept your procedure from being completed. Possibly mitigating your anxiety issue is something you should discuss with your dentist before trying again.

Also, regarding the need for an antibiotic, the signs of infection that show up on x-rays take time to develop. A lack of obvious signs doesn't mean that an infection doesn't exist, meaning hopefully being on your antibiotic for several days will create a local environment in the tissues (less acidic) that will allow the effect of the anesthetic to be more profound.

We wish you the best with your procedure.
