All is well.

The root canal went fine. In fact it wasn’t painful at all. My appointment was at 8.30am today and I was numbed up by 8.32am. In fact, it didn’t wear off completely until about 3.45pm this afternoon.

The pain now is minimal at worst. I took two Aleve just because I knew it would be hurting some. Now I can’t feel any pain except when I put some pressure on the tooth.

All in all, a very NON-traumatic experience. I don’t see why everyone was telling me how painful and horrid root canals are. They aren’t. At least not in my experience now. It was just like getting a filling.

More interesting posts soon to come I hope.

  1. I’m glad the procedure was painless for you. Thanks for posting this, I may have a root canal in my future and I’m not looking forward to it!

    1. Well, after stressing over the procedure all weekend, I am glad to report that it was all for naught. Even today I am not in any pain unless I forget and bite down with some decent force on the tooth.

      I didn’t even NEED the Aleve yesterday, I just took it as a precautionary measure. Today I don’t think I will take any.

      If you need a recommendation for a good endodontist, let me know and I’ll get you my Doctor’s information. GREAT bedside manner and very skillful with the tools 🙂

      1. Damn!

        Too bad you’re talking about a doctor! 🙂
