Coronation!

Well this morning I will be crowned! Well more exactly my tooth will be crowned.

I should be happy, being that this should be my last root canal related visit and I shouldn't ever have to think about it again. And that is what I am hoping/praying for.

BUT - I'm still having pain when I eat/drink something hot or cold and it's not just a mild tooth sensitivity but a sharp pain.

When I first went to the dentist we were not 100% sure which tooth needed the root canal b/c of how the pain radiated and it's a back molar. He thought it could be two teeth that needed treatment but once he began he thought this was definitely the problem tooth as it was obviously dead inside.

Also since the last appointment I've developed a pain in my lower jaw...

So this appointment shall not be the crowning glory that I hoped it would be...it's pretty discouraging to think that I might have to go through the whole root canal procedure again on another tooth - especially when the discomfort/pain/intensity is so recent in my mind.

I'd appreciate your prayers :)

Prayer said! Hopefully you won't have to go through this again.

I have unfortunately been in the same situation - my dentist wouldn't crown my tooth for at least six months in case he had to go back in...

TTYL,

How does a dentist not know what tooth needs the root canal? I hope this is your last and successful treatment!

Oh gosh...good luck! Though since you are getting a crown, do we get to call you "Your Highness" ;)
