Clearly, I befuddled my dentist and his assistant with my tiny tooth, and curved root.
What was supposed to be an hour and a half root canal took three hours!
I didn't mind too much. I just closed my eyes and listened to Steve Hackett.
However, I couldn't help but notice the dentist's assistant huffing and puffing about the fact she had to stay late on account of finishing my procedure. Very unprofessional!
When they were through, my dentist opted not to do a final x-ray because, he said, "You are very hard to x-ray." I objected, but was too tired, and numb to argue much.
Anyway, I survived and lived to tell the tale!
Ironic, I think, is the fact that my tooth hurts so much more today then it ever did before I got the root canal. Aren't they supposed to relieve the pain, not add to it?
Crossing my fingers that by Sunday I'm feeling better!
