All aboard the Root Canal Train, departing this afternoon at 1:00 pm. Toot toot!

Really not looking forward to this for many reasons, the least of which is that I'm only going in for the procedure today. It'll take a least a full month plus for me to get the cap and crown, since I have to pay for them at the time of the putting-inski session and I can't afford all that at once.

So while we wait to finish the work on the installment plan, as it were, I'll be walking around with a goddamned post in the front of my mouth where once a bad tooth used to lurk. Not that it could make me look any worse, mind you, and not that I've had any previous experience not smiling-with-teeth, but it's going to be a really sore point for quite some time.

Yeah, I'm really really really looking forward to the holiday season.

I just hope the work all gets done before January 17th, since that's a performance date.

Aren't they going to put a temporary covering on the post? They did for me, and although it fell out, at least they tried.

May it be as painless as possible.

It's been my experience, both in my own root canal, in talking to others who had them, and in talking to my family who are dentists, that, most of the time, the root canal itself is less painful than the condition that necessitated the root canal.

What is this, root canal week for my friends? Why wasn't I informed?
