I know what you’re thinking. I got root on a cool server, right? While that would be nice, unfortunately that’s not what happened. I had a root canal this morning, because the nerve was exposed from the tooth I broke yesterday. That’s right, they pulled my nerve out!
The root canal was actually pretty painless, and was kinda fun. Unfortunately the bill was not as fun, because I don’t have dental insurance. Had I not broken my tooth I could have flown home for a holiday and still come out better off. Anyway, I have to go back to the dentist now over the next few weeks to have the root canal all sealed up, and have some fillings put in and a crown put on it. For now they’ve given me Amoxicillin to prevent infection and some extra strength Acetaminophen as a painkiller.
Seeing as how my anesthetic is beginning to wear off, I think now would be a good time to start popping pills and preemptively dull the pain before it hits :).
