I am so horrible sometimes at keeping up with posting, where did the last 3 and a half weeks go? I am feeling much better but after getting over getting sick about 2 weeks ago I got another really bad infection in my back molar that broke about a year ago. I kept having to put off the root canal as I kept getting infections or getting sick. So after 2 more weeks of anti-biotics I had my root canal done on Saturday.
It went okay. I was in so much pain leading up to the root canal and then mid week last week they had to drain the abscess twice. I was terrified of the pain I would be in after the procedure as well as what it would be like during it. I have heard so many horror stories. Luckily all I felt during the whole thing was when they stuck the needles in to freeze me which I will not lie, was not pleasant but since the freezing works fast it did not last all that long.
They had to stop at one point and put in a bit more freezing cause he had to cut into my gums and do something to the root of the tooth outside the root canal procedure (can’t remember what it is called) they put more freezing in for good measure and I was still frozen so I didn’t feel it. I was really anxious at the beginning of the appointment. I do not have fond memories of dentists (does anyone really???) but by the end I was actually laughing at my dentist and his assistant as they are hilarious, they kept my mind off it. Actually they had me laughing the whole way through, and without laughing gas or nitrous oxide.
