So at the dentist today I was told I need to get a root canal. Apparently one of my cavities is too deep to repair with a filling. The dentist asked me if I knew anything about a root canal. I believe my response was "Only that is the most god awful dental procedure you can have." He laughed and said that's only partly true. If you wait too long apparently something happens with the tooth and novicane is not affective. So you go through it with no pain killer at all. I believe he used the term "excruciating". However he also said that if you do it quick, there's no pain and it's no worse than getting a filling done. \r\n\r\nSo i'm looking for experiences from people, good or bad, who have also had this done. I already have an appt for 2 weeks from now so hopefully I'll be fine. Thanks!!
