Root Canal Fun - NOT!

One of the real joys in life is getting a root canal, or, in my case, two root canals. At the same time! In fact, one of the teeth has four roots, and the dentist is "Root Canal-ing" all four roots, so in a sense it's like four root canals all by itself. Fortunately "Dr. Bob" is the best dentist I've ever seen, but it still hurts a bunch! Not only does it hurt, but by the time the session is over, I'm totally exhausted and don't get much done for the rest of the day other than eating a pain pill or so and (mercifully) falling asleep. We are on something of an expedited schedule to get these teeth fixed up before I start traveling, as I sure don't want a tooth blowing up when I'm far out of town. If all goes well, another couple of sessions and the "fun" should be over, at least I sure hope so............

After two, they don't bother me as much as rotator-cuff injuries. Those can really mess-up your draw-stroke.

One of the things that I feared the most is undergoing root canal procedures. But I'm very glad to have outgrown my fear, thanks to my skilled dentist. Laurel, MD is definitely a nice place to drive by, especially when I pay a visit to my dentist whose clinic is just within the area. I have to say, it is very refreshing to see the accommodating staffs together with my friendly oral care specialist in his clinic in Laurel, MD. Dentists there are all very professional and highly trained.

Thanks for sharing!
