Adventures in dentistry

Remember my entry about this tooth?

I had my appointment with the endodontist today. It turns out that even another root canal won't save it - it's going to have to be extracted. *sighs*

Apparently, when my previous dentist was doing the original root canal, he perforated the root. *double sigh* The endodontist explained that the least painful and least expensive thing to do is extract the sucker and put in a bridge.

I have to go back to my regular dentist on the eleventh and get the little bastard pulled. *triple sigh* Looks like lostsatyr and I ought to remember to get pudding and Spaghettios the next time we go grocery shopping.

Oh, well - at least with the little sucker gone, I won't be having any more problems with it. I'm just not looking forward to the extraction.

Do it as soon as possible. I had the exact thing happen (and the dentist doesn't have to perforate it, sometimes it just cracks on its own), and kept putting it off and infecting, and the post I made on being really sick with a fever and infection.. was because I let it go. I have to have mine out and get a bridge as well. My extraction will happen in January. But think of it this way - it won't be in there poisoning you. Good luck. *hug *

OOOOOOOWWWWWWWW!!!

Hopefully the extraction will be relatively painless.

On a side note, with the use of "frelling", I had to make sure this wasn't one of trystan830's posts. She likes to use that word a lot, as well.

Eeep! Tooth troubles are no fun. While extractions are not something I'd care to sit through, they're better than the alternative.
