Miah - I have had several root canals, and I have to tell you like Janet Marie, (cause we are older dudettes), I was scared silly to the point of almost pulling out my own tooth rather than going through what my Dad had years before.
However, pain gave in and treatment began, and it was not any worse than having a big filling done, and the pain was gone. It saves your tooth - the ultimate goal here after all (how can you enjoy corn on the cob without your own choppers?) Ah sure, some eat it but it is not the same.
Get a good book, two tylenol, and curl up and know tomorrow will be a better day. Hope all goes well. Let me see, one root canal $600.00
