So in two weeks I will be getting a ROOT CANAL. Oh, even writing it sounds so daunting. But it must be done. I haven't been able to chew on the right side of my mouth for 2 years. So how is that for looking forward to a lot of pain to get rid of pain??!?!
Whenever you hear, "getting a root canal" it just immediately forces you to cringe. Someone messing with the roots in your canal, man, it just can't be good.
I never had cavities. Never. Then I had kids and they sucked the calcium right out of my teeth. I went to the SAME dentist since I was 4 years old, and so he filled my cavity.
And it did not work.
I went back again. He put ice on my tooth OW!!!! He did some stuff.
It did not work.
I went back to this guy SIX. TIMES. SIX TIMES PEOPLE.
And he did not fix it.
What do I do? Decide to let it go for 3 years, yes, that is the best idea I've ever heard of. Right. Neglect it and then it will just get better on its own!
I had a dream the other night that I went and the dentist fixed it with lasers and it didn't hurt and took like, 4 minutes to finish. For some reason, this dream was the epiphany that led me to wake up and finally call a new dentist and schedule an appointment.
This new dentist is great, wonderful in fact. But, uh, it's gonna hurt and she said it will average about 2 1/2 hours to complete. (oh and yeah, by the way it's gonna cost like $700)
So, when people hear 'root canal' and cringe, are they cringing for the pain or for the price???
