Root Canals Suck
Just thought I’d let you know in case you weren’t sure. 😉
I’ve heard horror stories about pain following root canals. I’ve had root canals before, but I never had much pain afterward. A little soreness, a little discomfort, yeah, but not real pain. Right now I’m in screaming pain. I cried for an hour earlier. Tylenol 3 doesn’t touch it. I just want it to end. I am, in case you haven’t figured it out for yourself, a big baby when it comes to pain. I’ve decided to take tomorrow off work. I’m pretty sure no one wants to listen to me whine at my desk.
Makes me wonder what sort of dental care they have in my future world. The electric drills are a no go, but would they have anesthesia? What material would they use for fillings? Omaha is far more advanced than the small surrounding towns, so would city people have better dental care than rural people? When the railroad comes would it allow people to travel further faster to get dental care?
See? This is the stupid stuff I think about all the time. What if? Try asking the dentist these sorts of questions while he’s looking in your mouth. He said it was always interesting to work on me. Hmph.
