Root Canal Without Novocaine

Much has been made of James Frey's fictional memoir including scepticism of his claim of undergoing root canal without Novocaine. Big deal. I have had root canal without Novocaine. The nerve was aleady mostly dead and my dentist killed it the rest of the way by packing it with a powerful antiseptic. He went in until it hurt and then stopped, repacked it with the antiseptic and a palliative temporary filling and told me to come back in a week or so. It took three sessions.
Thanks to Drudge for the link to the story.
