A few years ago I had my one and only root canal.
It was a terrible experience.
I won't blame the dentist. I do know that it has never been right.
I have another tooth which was also impacted. I refused to allow him to do a root canal.
Instead I had him cap the tooth.
That has been also two years.
Now, the "Dead" root canal tooth is giving me fits. That wasn't supposed to happen.
The tooth that I unadvisedly had capped even though there was infected raw nerve showing is just fine.
I think there is less about dentistry than dentists know.
Time to rethink the root canal.
I have a suspicion that a root canal is basically to make a boat payment for most dentists and less necessary than they make us poor guppies all believe.
If I sound cranky, I am, I have a toothache that I was promised I would never have again.
