Adventures of a Cuspid.

This morning I had a root canal done. I have had 2 done years ago but I can't remember any pain after the procedure. I'm finally numb free now. It was funny trying to make a kissy face to my daughter. Half my lips pursed while the right side was completely straight. I didn't take the offer of Vicodin from my dentist (prescription of course! lol) since I have a high pain tolerance. I took an Aleve since it's an anti-inflammatory medicine.

I noticed that I have a red bruise on the back of my gums where the root canal was done. I can't bite into anything right now. It actually hurts more now than before. Normal? I sure hope so since the only thing left would be an extraction. I have spent alot of money on this tooth already.
If anyone has had one done recently or can remember how it was, please share if you had any pain afterwards.

A Bientot!

I have had three root canals (one was done by accident(?) and had to go back the next day to have the correct one done. All three times I had pain after. My friend's father is an oral surgeon and he said that it is normal. I hope it's feeling better soon.

I'm scheduled for one next week! I've had two a few years ago and considering I don't have a high tolerance for pain, they were excruciating!
