Default Had to leave..

Have to leave work today.

The last week or so I've been having some pain in my lower right moler...my wife was thinking it was my sinus considering this has happened in the past. I told her it is more intense then anything prior. However I put it off hoping it would clear up like in the past.

While eating breakast this morning at my business I felt a sharp edge on my tooth that I have been having problems with. I looked down and saw that half my tooth was in the bowl of cereal...OH OHH .

Just got in contact with my dentist who will be able to see me in a few hours..This is going to be a root canal IMHO...OUCH..Well at least I have dental insurance.

Not looking forward to this (then again who would)
I already know the procedure...inject huge amount of Novacane...drill out old filling...another injection into tooth...take out nerve....drill a few canals....insert long metal pins....fill with temp...wait 3 weeks for tooth to heal...back to dentist...take out temp....insert posts...get crown impression....make a mold...come back a few weeks later...put on crown.

Lucky that I will have someone to watch the business while I am gone for about 2 hours today.
Why do I keep thinking about that movie Dr Giggles ...

Root Canal done...OMG...injected 6 times...started to drill and I hit the roof...more injections... After he drilled out the old filling he told me he needed to inject the Novacane into my tooth, and again I hit the roof...pain was finally gone and he completed the root canal.

I have another appointment on Aug 11th to do impression of crown and add posts...Well at least the pain is over with.

How can your tooth give you pain ?..after a root canal their is no nerve...unless the crown shifted on you or there is something wrong in your gum. Your tooth has no nerve which means it cannot give you pain...I am confused on that one.

So sorry to hear about the tooth, it is actually not that bad, worst part is having to keep your mouth open for about an hour, but not too much pain....Check in when you get home....

Thank you Donna...The dentist gave me Tylenol with codiene, He said that my jaw bone would give me pain for a day or so...I took one after the Novacane wore off...no pain since...it's not too bad now...the worst is over.
