NEVER get a root canal :(
For a little history, with any dental work 1 tiny shot of barely any novicane would work for me, even my abcessed tooth and when my teeth were pulled. I just got back from the dentists office and had a root canal, i REGRET it 100% already. Right when I get in she gives me the shot and I almost screamed because they have to give it to u in the nerve. She starts drilling and I feel it to the point of i smacked her hand on accident because of the pain. She then gives me more and more and more and I keep feeling the pain so she says "one more bit and then ill give u more" as the pain gets even worse. She starts with those little wire things and starts cleaning out the roots or w/e she is doing, she cant get into a root because it was calcified. She calls my dentist in and he says it might not take, the cavity went for so long that your body has calcifed it to protect the root. So she keeps digging, by this time my jaw is KILLING me my face and everything is numb but it still hurt like hell and she kept giving me shot after shot until finally I just gritted and bared it so it could be done with. 1 hour later it was almost finished, she tells me it was infected UMMMMMMMM hello this is why you take these digital xrays so u can see things like this. anyway, we do some more xrays, she starts to finish off and my god this part is what hurt the worst! She starts closing it all up and dont know why but i felt every bit of it. My face/head/neck is numb but NOT where i had my root canal. ITs been 1 hour now since i was done, i will update you on how im feeling in a day or maybe later tonight who knows.
Just wanted to warn you all getting an abcessed tooth pulled was a LOT less painful, cracking my teeth to the exposed root was less painful, hell shoving my foot into a glass door cutting down to the bone was less painful. Think twice about the root canal.
