This morning I had a root canal.  Believe it or not, it was no big deal.  People always say how horrible they are, but mine was a piece of cake.  I had a really good guy doing it.

I had a horrible experience with a root canal.  Way too much money & pain.  I didn't even have the final cap done.  My regular dentist put a permanent filling in it.  I told him that will do until it falls (or rots) out of my head.  I will NOT do that again.

My regular dentist recommended this endodonsist.  I only had an annoyance in my tooth, but not big pain.  However, having an artificial hip joint, I didn't want to risk any infection in my system so made the evaluation appointment for last Friday.  The x-ray showed one of the roots was bad.  They would have taken me on Monday, but that's a day I work, so opted for Tuesday.  The 2 novacaine shots didn't even hurt, he was that good.
The tooth had a crown so he had to drill through it.  The whole procedure took a little over an hour and at no time was I uncomfortable.  I think as someone else said, your root canal experience is only as good as the endodontist doing it.  I hope I don't have to have another one, but if I do, I know where I'll go.  The only other option was pulling the tooth, which neither he or I wanted.  His office called me today to see how I was doing.  I thought that was very nice.
I went to my regular dentist this morning and had the permanent filling put in.
