Under the Drill Again!

If I didn't have bad luck, I would have no luck at all. I have been dealing with pain at the nerve areas of my teeth for quite some time. Once it starts, it quickly spreads to surrounding teeth until all of them are throbbing.

I normally chew ice, which backs the pain off. Lately, however, the two crowns I just had done have been driving me crazy. The ice shoots pain straight through to the nerves instead of helping. I finally went to the dentist yesterday. Today, I found myself at an endodontist at 7:50 a.m. for a consult.

Yep, something wrong at the nerve root. The tooth has four cusps and two of them had infection in them. The tooth was dying, great, huh? My root canal appointment was at 11:50 a.m. and I walked out of there after 2:30 p.m. Luckily they have blocks to hold your mouth open instead of having to force your muscles to hold it open. Plus, they use a rubber dam that keeps the water away from the back of your mouth so you don't feel like you are drowning.

Let me tell you the relief I feel from the pain! Wow! What a difference. Now to face the pain of the bill when it comes. They make you pay your portion up front. AND since I already had two crowns done this year, my insurance would only pay a little over $300.

Now, back at home, I'm wondering if I need to check into Santa Fe dehumidifiers
for the humidity problem in this house. Steve bought a new sump pump for the crawl space and will hopefully have it installed soon. Hope you're all keeping dry and safe! Halfmoon
