    Yep, that's what I remember it being like except my tooth wasn't a cartoon. It didn't hurt though.

Root Canals R Us

Friday, November 05, 2010

I need a root canal.
And I don't want to do it,

I'm not so much worried about the root canal itself ( I'm not.. it can't be more pain than what I am currently experiencing!) I'd just like it pulled since it is getting expensive AND bothersome. I've been dealing with it for OVER a year.

Originally, an old filling was coming out so I went in to the dentist to have that fix. The D-bag cracked my tooth while gouging out the old filling. That left me in pain/sensitivity and "Oh, your tooth is cracked. We're going to need to do a temporary crown".

Temporary crown fixed everything AWESOME and we should have left it at that BUT they pushed to have permanent crown in place. It's been horrible ever since. The crown always felt like it didn't snap into place/ was too high. Hurts to chew on that side, the shape/tallness is off. I've had it ground down every time I've gone in since then and it's been not good.

Now, this past week+ I've had the horrible pain waves, aches, swelling, etc. Who knows what else! So, I need to get it taken care of. If I need a root canal, fine, but if they can pull the darn thing, I say DO IT since that tooth has been nothing but trouble.

Who knows, maybe if they pull it and the pain is gone, I'll find that I really was supposed to be a sweet person all along!

My dentist doesn't do root canals in-house sooooooooo I might just try the U of MN dental school. Has anyone else local used their services??

    My grandma has used the U of M dental school for a couple of years. No major problems. Good luck. I hope you have a good experience - I'm guessing it all depends on who you get.

    I am so happy I have a good dentist. I saw a special on TV once that showed that a lot of dentists will try to give you new procedures every time you go in just so they can make money. This means some of those times you'll be getting things done you don't even need. My dentist does root canals but I've never had him do any. I have a very sensitive mouth and I'm afraid of pain there. I always go to an endodontist for root canals. I'm not sure if getting a tooth pulled is the best option. You'll have to get a fake one put in then so the teeth don't start to shift. That could be just as expensive and you'll have to find denture products for the rest of your life.

    Yeah. I figured since I would be going to a "stranger" for the root canal.. I'd might as well take advantage of the deeply discounted dental training schools around!

    I have also had a dentist crack my tooth and subsequently had to have a crown....luckily no root canal on that one...yet. I do think it may have been unavoidable (cracking the tooth, I mean). It's definitely no fun to go through it but the root canal should take care of the problem.
None of the dentists I have gone to have done root canals in-house. They have always sent me to a specialist for that.
Good luck!!!

A GREAT article on a blog that I read about the importance of knowing where all the important paperwork is BEFORE a loved one passes away. Includes the best list I've seen for what information might need to be know

Alluring eyes

Saturday, October 30, 2010

So, at the urging of a friend, I wore fake eyelashes with my pirate costume. Using the adhesive that came with the (cheap-o) pair from Wal-mart was fine; however, when I tried to apply the other lashes with my friends expensive "superior" lash adhesive, it BURNED! Very uncomfortable... so back to the Wal-mart cheap adhesive to finish off the project. By the end of the evening, which technically was this morning, the corners of the fake lashes were coming up but I have to say, they still looked neat.

What did you ( or kids or ?) dress as for Halloween?

    I'll have to remember that if I ever wear false eyelashes. Do you have pictures?
