Went to the dentist tonight to have a filling replaced; the second in two months time. The first was still hurting. I talked to my dentist about the pain, he took x-rays, he asked questions, he tapped around in my mouth and then announced, "It's root canal time!"
I have two options:
1. Call the hoity-toity specialist in the Valley and have it taken care of within the week.
2. Go to SLU, a teaching hospital, and have the equivalent of Alex Carev do my root canal for half the price.
I'll let you know.
Either way, I am having a root canal.
I feel old.
