Dental Adventure: Root canal

Me, taking an impression of my tooth after getting a root canal. I look pleased, don't I?

I went in for a cap or crown. And the dentist turns to me: "looks like we need to take out that nerve." Hmm, I think. That nerve doesn't look too big on the x-ray.

Guess what a crown + nerve removal is? A root canal of course. I love how the Dr.'s euphemisms put me at ease.

All went well, and the only discomfort I felt was minimal. I got to see them use a whole new set of power tools on my mouth (love the drill with the extra long bit).

Well, I survived. And so far, no discomfort.
