I’m scared

Edit: The dentist’s office called this morning to tell me the dentist was out sick and rescheduled me for Thursday.

Yesterday I went to the dentist to get a tooth filled and that didn’t hurt, but Monday I have to get a root canal. I’m scared because I’ve never had one before and am afraid it will hurt. I hate dental work. :sleepy:

In other news, my Facebook group is doing well and I’m proud of that. I worked hard on it.

Just a short blog, sorry.

  1. :( I’m not going to lie, my root canal was painful. BUT, the tooth had already abscessed, and I had been in the ER the week before for emergency antibiotics and pain medication. So I was starting out with a lot of pain that even Vicodin every 4 hours couldn’t fully take away. The root canal process just seemed like a very drawn-out cavity filling process – lots of needles for numbing, gel for more numbing, drilling to remove the nerves and non-salvageable parts of the tooth, and at one point a tweezer-like tool to pluck out the nerves. Once the nerves were gone, the pain coming from the tooth itself immediately died down. After that, there was no more drilling – just the dentist packing the tooth with a special filling.

    I hope my story helps some, or at least assures you that yes root canals suck, but they’re not as horrific as some might lead you to believe. Just make sure you have decent pain meds on hand after – I was sent home with Tylenol 3.
