Every winter a couple of my teeth start to hurt. They have these really long roots that stick up into my sinus, and they ache when the storms move past us (low pressure). I dutifully go to the dentist to have them checked -- just in case. I am usually really embarrassed, but better safe than sorry.
So today I went in. Not the usual problem. Bummer. A different tooth -- not one of the usual suspects -- developed a large decay under the filling. To make a long story short, it's root canal time.
I am not a happy camper. I'm not a big fan of discomfort, especially dental pain. Oh, well, there is much good news so I will try to be optimistic! There was no infection. I have been especially frugal lately so I don't need to stress over the cost. It will be done on Monday, so I do not need to spend weeks dreading the whole business.
Just one of those exciting experiences that remind us we are alive! So far, it seems to beat the alternative!
