Needing 2 root canals!
Yesterday I went to the dentist for a regular check up. I mentioned that I was having a little pain and sensitivity somewhere on the upper left side. (It's so hard for me to pinpoint exactly where)
They took X rays, and she said it looks like one of my previous root canals has a problem, and the tooth next to it also has a problem. (I don't remember what she said the problems were. I tend to blot those unpleasant details out of my memory.)
Anyway, she referred me to an endodontist. I got an appointment for this morning, which I thought was just for more X rays and a consultation, but they had time to start the work, and it saved me the $100 consult fee if I start today, so... here I am with the first phase of a double root canal already finished. I am still numb up to my eyeball, and and my mouth is so numb, when I came home Michael said I looked as if I'd had a stroke.
As soon as my face wakes up, I need to go get some prescriptions filled, and then I'm going to treat myself to a milkshake.
