Root Canal! NOooooooo!

I've had this filling in my tooth for about 20 years. About 8 years ago, my dentist told me it had a crack in it, and should be re-done.

Fiddle-dee-dee, said I... I worry not about such things!

Fast forward to today, and me sitting in a dentist chair with what felt like 4 hands and 42 drills, nozzles and tubes stuck in my mouth, and a long drill penetrating down to my jawbone... and I realize I probably should have listened back then.

'We might be able to save this tooth' says the dentist. 'We'll do a root canal, and see how it goes. If it still hurts, we'll just take it out'.


So the root canal is done, we'll see how long it takes for the anesthesia to wear off, and let me know if this thing is gonna stay or gonna go.
