Root Canal

Well, I just finished having my first root canal today. It was a big step and a hard thing to deal with but so worth not having any more pain in my mouth. It started a few weeks ago when I started having a bit of a toothache. I waited about a week and until it was pretty painful before going to the dentist(mainly because we don't have dental insurance) I finally went for a check up and found out I needed a root canal. I scheduled it for about a week and a half later but by the next day I just couldn't bear the pain any more. I called after hours on a Saturday and my wonderful dentist called in some pain medicine and antibiotics to help last me until Monday. On Monday at about 1 p.m. they started the root canal and removed the "root" of the problem. Thank goodness for a good friend being able to babysit and for my dentist. Then just today it was finished and I am so glad that it is behind me. It wasn't a really bad one in a way because it didn't have a huge cavity on top of it just a very large filling that just wasn't doing its job anymore. Yeah! I made it:)

I'm relieved you made it through. It hurts so bad to have tooth pain like that. I'm glad that you were able to get to the dds and take care of it, I hope. Thinking of you!
