Well, I finally had that pesky tooth root canal'd! If you remember from earlier posts, I was having pressure or biting pain when I chewed on it. So I havent been for about 8 months since the filling. Anyway, we did the root canal and it was nothing at all. In fact, I didnt feel a thing. Even after the novicane wore off, its been very mild! However, while I do feel some of the sensitivity gone, there is still some there, and im wondering...why? He told me to give it a week and with each day it would get better and better. I guess im being impatient, but im worried that I still have some of the same feeling that I had before. He told me that there are still nerves around the outside of the tooth and that if there was a fracture there that went all the way up to the root, that could be why! Well, what happens next? Do I have to loose the tooth alltogether?
Im just wondering if anyone else has had a root canal for the same reason, and what it was like recovering. Did it go away or did you need further work done? I never had too much sensitivity to hot/cold, but did recently somewhat to cold. Thats gone, its just this sensitivity that seems to be taking its sweet time healing. Anyone have any stories?
I would appreciate it.
