    Take a look at Colleen's answer.
    If the pulp (nerve) was dead the procedure would not be painful in any case. If the pulp was live, I don't see how anyone could withstand the pain, Buddhist or not.

    It's a joke! He wanted to transcend dental medication. It's a groaner, isn't it?

    Novocain does not work on me. I've had to withstand the pain. It's do-able ;)

    Yes, I did understand the joke acually.
    As a dentist ( retired) I still have an uncontrollable urge to answer dentally related questions.
    As a one-time TM practitioner I call myself a transcendental surgeon.
