Does getting fillings hurt?

I'm 13 and I'm getting fillings Friday. Does it hurt? I'm really nervous. I'm getting 6 at one time. Only one is really deep though. I've never had any dental work done before so. Is it sore afterwards and is it hard to eat?

Nope. Nope. And nope. They numb you up so there isnt any pain. The way your mouth is held open can be a bit awkward though. Plus your gonna have tools constantly in your mouth. Other than it being uncomfortable its a walk in the park. You dont even feel the shot when they numb you up.

I've had 2 fillings and I actually didn't know that they were doing it! Completely painless. But mine were both minor, but I doubt your deep one will hurt. Your mouth doesn't get sore

They don't really hurt. usually you are given a shot to numb your mouth

well to me It didn't hurt but then again I don't know if it usually happens to everyone but at the end of my process my mouth or tongue sort of felt numb, but it'll go away,. if I were you I wouldn't worry to much.

I used to think getting the shots hurt when I was a kid so I used to have them fix my teeth without novacaine. These days you have numbing gels, gas, shots, it's almost unheard of to have pain. Please don't worry.
