Joys at the Dentist

Root Canals suck.  Having one that never ends is what gives root canals the bad name.  I have one of those!  My dentist told me today mine is the type that give root canals the bad name :(  Seriously, I have LONG roots (23-25 mm when most are 17 mm, 20 mm if long) and then all my roots are narrow. 

Makes it super fun :(

I am not loving this.

I have spent 2.5 hours in the chair and have at least another hour.

The only upside to all this is we are double dental insured and our dentist is good price wise so all these hours in the chair wont cost me more than $300 for root canal and the crown that will come in the following months.  Even better - I can use my flex spending so I actually can afford this.  Guess I can say I am blessed.

  1. I. HATE. ROOT. CANALS. I would rather have my knee blow out again and have surgery than have to go through one like my last one. Pure misery! Good luck! Hopefully it gets better QUICK!
