I thought it was strange when my tooth started hurting. I had, after all, had a root canal done on this particular tooth not 2 weeks previously, and I had a crown put on just last week (and yes, of course I contemplated getting a platinum crown with teensy weensy diamonds in it). And a root canal removes the nerve. Oh, well, apparently the root in question has a micro-channel, which is of course undetectable by the x-ray. So tomorrow I get to have my root canal undone--oh joy--so I can go to a specialist who will take it from there. LUCKY ME. So excuse me if I seem grumpy or irritable. It's because I am.
After this is all over, I'm getting a massage.
I'm not a total spoiled brat. I know that this is no big deal. I know that if this is the worst thing that happens to me this year that I'm doing pretty darn well. Heck, at least I have roots for canalling. Still, I feel that I am within my rights by doing a bit of complaining, especially considering that I really hate going to the dentist and that I chose Gentle Dental for that reason. Not so they could gently explain to me that they have to undo the root canal they just did so that it can be redone. Plus, I have a cavity.
