Does getting a cavity drilled hurt?

I have to get my first cavity drilled tomorrow and I'm kinda scared just cuz I'm scared of any doctor.

The shot hurts , then there's all the smoke and tooth fragments flying around, then he fills, then you rinse, then you get a toy...

No, it doesn't hurt. The drill makes lots of noise but don't worry you won't feel a thing.

The dentist will give you a shot to numb that part of your mouth; if you hold really still while he gives the shot, there is little chance that even the shot will hurt much.

Your dentist twill first give you a numbing agent in the area of the gum where they will then give you a shot to completely numb the tooth and gums in that area. If your dentist is very good, you won;t even feel the shot. You may feel a vibration from the drill, but it will not hurt. You will be just fine :0)

Not to freak you out or anything, but when I was about 4 I had 2 drilled and the numbing didn't work so I felt the whole thing. It hurt.
