So...the root canal.
Naturally, the dentist took me a half hour late so I could think the worst a little longer. After taking a look at my outlaw tooth, he said we were gonna move into his other room. He claims it was cause the light was better in there...I think it was cause he wanted to move me further from the waiting room when I screamed (I was already whimpering).
Before beginning, I told him about my weak gag reflex, which I'm sure impressed him. I may as well have told him I liked apple martini's. Oh, wait.
ANYWAY, the actual root canal went fine. In fact, I asked the dentist why they had such a bad rep. He said that they used to be bad and sometimes, if the infection is worse, there may be some pain.
Gotta go back next week to get permanent cap. I told him I had such a good time, I may bring friends.
