Just had a bridge in front less than 2 weeks ago and now it appears I need a root canal for an abscssed tooth. Killer pain.... I luckily have pain killers and antibiotics to take until I can see him. If the pain becomes unbearable tomorrow he will see me then, otherwise I will see him on Monday first thing.
Used up all my dental benefits for the year and so this will be all "out of pocket."
I am doing better now after taking a double dose of Vicodin. Have to get some yogurt down so it doesn't tear up the stomach....
Guess it wasn't bruxism afterall, but the beginning of an abscess.
Hope the pain subsides after he works on the tooth.
I am going to try to get some sleep now, sleeping upright to keep it from throbbing....
