| | apicoectomy
Hi! I am new to message boards so please forgive me if I mess up. But I desperately need to hear from someone who's had an apicoectomy. I have an appt. scheduled for this coming Thurs. to have an apico on my two bottom front teeth - and I am soooo nervous! The endo said that I wouldn't need anything but a local; however, he did prescribe valium as a backup if my nerves were too jangled. The thought of the cutting scares me. Is there a lot of pain after the local wears off? Is it much worse than a root canal? Thanks for any help/advice that you can give me.
