Went in for my root canal today. Took them 7 X-tips to numb me up. Last week they tried preping the area and 10 didn’t do it (and that is the limit). Turns out they didn’t hit the right spot. They had to drill deep to get it.
For those who don’t know, X-tip is wonderful. Though it hurts for 2-3 seconds as they drill and start depositing the anesthetic. That and it leaves an awful taste.
But numbed I was, and off I went. Doug and Dave gave me encouragement in the office before going. Doug saying calming things, and Dave giving me horror stories … :)
Now home recuperating. Will be in the office tomorrow. Friday I get the next crown.
