Today, I went to a dentist in Indianapolis. He was to find my sensitivity problem and take care of it. Well he did. He put ice on all the teeth in that area. Hit each tooth, pushed on each tooth. Then he said, let's wait a few minutes and I try another cold test. I close my eyes , so I never saw where the cold came from, it was like a super cold...maybe a chemical..heck, I do not know. Well I just about came out of the chair. To top things off...it was not even a tooth that I thought could be having trouble. It was my back molar. There was three roots in it...making it a three root canal job.
I go crazy just hearing the drill. So there is no relaxing, not for me.The dentist and his assistant were so gentle.....but it's still a root canal. My jaw hurt from just holding my mouth open. I took 2 tylenals, right after...have to take 2 more at 3:30.I will hurt for today but should be fine tomorrow. I have had root canals before, but never one that took this long ....that's why I say, come Friday my mammogram will be a breeze....Thank you to all who sent me good wishes to survive this. :):)
