Ain't Life Grand?

So, I had a root canal yesterday. It wasn't really part of the plan, but I had been having some pain in a tooth that had a filling put in it a few months ago, and I had made an appointment to see my dentist to have it checked out. Over the weekend I got a phone call from his assistant telling me to go see a specialist, because my description of the problem made my dentist think it could be something serious. So I called the specialist on Monday morning, and they had an opening at 11:00 AM, which worked out great. So I headed over there for a diagnostic check and by 12:10 they had scraped the root out of the tooth. The odd thing is that supposedly root canals hurt. However, I have had no pain, just some lingering soreness in the jaw, which totally makes sense considering what was going on yesterday. Still, what a way to start the week, eh?
