Ok, so today I woke up at like 5am with the most WRECKLESS PAIN! I'm 16years old and Had a 'crown' or 'cover' on my second Molar tooth around 4-5 days ago, and it gave me no pain until now, Just SLIGHTLY touching it causes severe pain.
The sort of pain you get when a dentist cleans your tooth and it hurts your nerves because that air he blows in is so damn cold.. it's worse than biting ice cream.
My wisdom tooth is also growing, beneath the gums im not sure if its growing straight or colliding yet.. so I'm not sure if thats effecting it.
I heard its my nerves dying (I WISH IT IS) or i need a root canal. Anything to get rid of the nerves in this freaking tooth will help!
Does a root canal hurt? how long is the procedure? do i have to keep my mouth open for 2 straight hours? how do i avoid gagging on my salavi while keeping my mouth open?
Please let me know how the root canal goes. I am likely facing my first one soon and am SCARED. I have trouble staying numb (can't use epinepherine for other medical reasons) and keeping my mouth open for a long time. Like you I have a recent crown going bad. Thanks!
My root canal is tomorrow, the dentist told me he will use strong anesthetic so I don't feel the pain when he touches my nerves, my main issue is keeping my mouth open for 1hour lool
I'm going to ask him "Do i need to keep my mouth open for 1hour?" and hopefully he will provide a bite block for me or something, I don't really have a problem with keeping my mouth open as long as I can swallow my saliva, ill tell you how it goes tomorrow
