Root Canal Part Deux


You know part 1 of my root canal wasn't too bad (other than the cost!). There was more pain in the middle of the night but a couple of ibuprofens took care of it. So though I wasn't looking forward to my appointment today - I figured, pain-wise it shouldn't be too bad.

Boy was I wrong!

The dr. kept praising my "poise". Makes me wonder - do other people cry when they are having a root canal - b/c I sure know that I felt like it!

My appointment took 2 hours - and there is still one more appointment - which I'm hoping will be MOSTLY pain free when he fits me for a crown. I'd say after all that pain I deserve a crown!

Well since it's kind of hard to chew I decided I'd just have a Slurpee and a Krispy Kreme donut (albeit from the gas station) for lunch - the best donuts are the custard filled ones! YUM! It doesn't take much for me to resume my pre-marriage, unhealthy eating habits...

I knew it would be painful! New technology hasn't improved much since I had mine done!

I've never had one of these, and now I really hope I never need one!

Ouch! I've been there, done that etc. The first was the worst - don't want to give details on that one except to say that I had dental phobia afterward. Don't worry though, unless you're going to a Scottish butcher (figuratively speaking) things should be bearable. My second experience was actually about my most pleasant ever dental experience. Go figure!
