The root canal went just as Babik described, "It will feel like they are jamming pipe cleaners in your tooth". So I was prepared. I was not however, prepared for the day three cheek swelling and antibiotics and the possible need to remove the crown to let the "gases" release. This is only round one, the permanent root canal packing and putting my crown permanently back on is yet to be complete.
Tonight I am a chipmunk with a prescription of ice cream for dinner.
