I have to have a Root Canal...

and I am terrified.

I've made two appointments.

The first one was before Christmas.

I sat in the chair for about 5 minutes, then all but ran out of the office.

But not before they made me another appointment for after Christmas.

The appointment was for Monday at 8:00 am.

Sunday night I couldn't sleep.

I searched the internet for facts about Root Canals.

I scared myself so bad that at midnight I canceled my appointment.

I called my dentist the next day and apologized...

He was nice and talked me through it.

He told me to call when I was ready,

but not to wait too long because the tooth will only get worse.

I know I have to do this, but....

I am terrified.

Don't be afraid. Just go do it. I have had enough root canals that I COULD WRITE A BOOK. I'm a little claustrophobic so I don't like when they totally cover my mouth--it scares me.

I've had 3 root canals. The first one was many years ago and it was rather horrible. The next one was several years ago and it wasn't nearly as bad. The most recent one was a piece of cake...when it was done I exclaimed, "That's IT?!" What I'm trying to say is that they just keep getting better and better at these things! :)

When you need a root canal, you are often in unbearable pain beforehand (I certainly was). When it's done, the pain is gone and it feels like A MIRACLE!
