About That Root Canal

There was no root canal today. They did some more tests on the tooth today and found out it didn't need it. I do, however, need my wisdom teeth removed! This means that in July I will get going to see an oral surgeon. I'm not too thrilled about this but what can I do – they gotta come out as they are causing me pain. Its going to be a rough summer.

I had three pulled and it was ok. After they take it out I soak my mouth in epsom salt and the pain is gone in about an hour.

oh dear youescaped the root canal but pulling the wisdom teeth is another process with some pain. be sure notto dis lodge blood clots ikn y ou r pulled wisdeom teethholes as if you do you will have some horrble pain and have to go back to the dentist to have it stopped. I learned that the hard way. but other than that it was really not too bed having t hem out.

I had mine taken, but they wouldn't let me keep them! They cut mine out, and they gave me the stuff that makes people weird out, but it did nothing to me.

I've had both procedures and I can promise you that the cost of the surgery is the worst part - neither hurt at all.

I am glad you do not need a root canal but that stinks you need to have your wisdom teeth out. Most people do have to have them removed. I still have mine and they rarely cause me any pain so far thankfully.
