Saturday I had a toothache that morphed into a miserable pain in my mouth. Saturday and Sunday I took tylenol every 5 hours. Unfortunatly the pain escalated. This morning at 10 am I saw a nearby dentist who referred me to an endodontist. The pain was so intense I would have consented to anything. By 1:00 pm my root canal was over after an hour and a half in the chair. The tooth had curved roots.. thus it took longer. By 4 pm the novacain had worn off and I was miserable again. I applied ice packs and tried the pain med he prescribed... but by 8 pm Ted was driving to CVS to pick up something a little stronger. Now the pain is better. Not the way I wanted to spend a day... but that pain was unbearable... I'm on the mend!!
