Well I had my first root canal today and since I spent the extra money on the “gas” I pretty much slept through the whole thing. I am not one who loves to spend money on anything but books, in hard copy or electronic format from Logos.com, but the nitrous at the dentist is a necessity for me. I am phobic about the dentist, and only because of my great and very patient dentist do I now have anything resembling a healthy mouth. All of that to say that the stories about root canals being near child-birth in the intensity of pain either were not true or were very well masked by the gas.
I am writing this under the influence of some pain medication, so please don’t take all that I say in this post as being written without a tongue in a fairly sore cheek. some of it, however, is really serious. I’ll leave it up to you to decide which is which.
