S: Hi, Tom, why the long face?
E: I must go to the dentist. I have got the toothache.
S: Do not tell me, you are afraid of the dentist.
E: Yes, I am.
S: You should not be. Such visit will not definitely cause you more pain than you already feel.
E: Why are you so sure of it.
S: Last week I had a terrible toothache and had to go to the dentist. The doctor checked my tooth and told me I had one cavity. He gave me an anesthetic then. It hurt only a little. The doctor used an electric drill and quickly got rid of caries. Finally he filled my teeth and let me go home!
E: What can I expect then?
S: If you have got a cavity than only a small injection and no pain really! But after the visit I promised myself not to touch chocolate for the rest of my life!
