Time for a root canal February 6, 2013

Posted by JP in Venting.

root canal 003I woke up 3 days ago with a toothache (made my Superbowl watching experience less pleasant than I would have liked). The following day my face started to swell and I called my dentist to get it checked out. I went to the dentist yesterday who confirmed an abscess and referred me to the Periodontist – who made time for me to come in today to get a root canal performed.

About 10 years ago I had broken a molar and went to the dentist. He did a root canal and put in a crown, but what I found out yesterday was that the dentist did the root canal on only  3 roots – of  a 4-root tooth!  Now I have to get another root canal done!

I hate it when you pay a “professional” an exorbitant fee to do their job and they do sketchy work. Now I have to go back (to a much better dentist) to have another procedure and pay another large sum of money to set things right.
