The Root Canal

It was a piece of cake relative to what it could have been.

My body does not make efficient use a pain deadeners like Novocain so dentistry is never pain free. My father had the same problem. A good injection will block out most pain but those breakthroughs are painful.

And so he started drilling and it went fine. Then he started digging each root removing the live nerve and that went fine until number 4. It hurt like hell. He poured in more painkillers directly on the nerve. It hurt much less.

Overall not bad…. seriously Teresa. I have had crowns that cause more discomfort.

Oh…I could have bought a 50 inch TV for what it all cost too. But that is the cost of maintaining a buff 54 year old body.

Hah, "No pain, no gain!"

Good to hear it went relatively well. I don't remember much about mine - my main memory is of expecting the drill to burst through and come out of the bottom of my jaw!

...up until this moment I was not aware that teeth could actually be "buff"...

Hey I have the same deal. High energy cant sit still guys process the novacain too fast and it doesn't last long enough. Get your dentist to use one with an additive to extend the time, like Markain(sp?). The sedation thing is also effective if you have a lot of work to be done.
