That was my first root canal. (I'm sure it won't be my last; thanks for the crappy teeth, Mom and Dad!)
As my little nephew would say, "It was kinda horrible."
Here are a few observations made while under the drill:
- I love whoever created Novocaine.
- X-ray squares HURT.
- When the dentist is cleaning out your tooth canals, it sounds like you’re chewing Silly Putty. (oh come on, you know you’ve done it)
- It's scary when the assistant holds out an implement to the doctor and he looks at it blankly and asks, “What is that?” And then he USES it.
- Root canals suck, but not as badly as letting your tooth go until you’ve got an abscess and it feels like your jaw has exploded when you eat ice cream.
